Área of the plant can develop Industry 4.0 in the City

The port is planned from the perfection of a proposal of the Investe São Paulo Program in 2012, but never left the paper.
“In this contact that brings investors closer to Usiminas, the City will not do anything, it only acts as an inducement to progress, as is the attraction of other investors and in negotiations, for example, with the Secretary of Energy of the State Government, in the use of the old residential areas of the Henry Borden Plant”, explains Sá Filho. The City Hall wants to make life easier for those who are interested in investing in the city, so that this investment happens in Cubatão and not elsewhere, “he adds. He is also interested in bringing investors interested in installing a Data Center in the preserved areas of old houses of the Henry Borden Mill, mostly unoccupied.
Data Center is a designed environment where an organization’s data storage and processing equipment is located. It can host thousands of servers, databases and other components. “With this flagship pulling other companies maybe we will not start a start up incubator? We have companies in the City – like Braskem and Petrobras – involved in this innovation process.” The purpose is to make way for Industry 4.0 in the City. Dates Centers need a larger volume and guaranteed uninterrupted power supply. “I have been in contact with Energy Secretary José Carlos Meireles and he has assured that the plant supplies this supply and, if necessary, the State builds a gas-fired thermoelectric plant to guarantee the quality of electricity transmission.” The deputy mayor ensures that this project maintains the Municipal School of the Henry Borden Plant. “Our dream is to transform Cubatão into a kind of Silicon Valley in the USA.”
