Bruce Myatt, PE is a registered Mechanical Engineer and Founder of Silicon Valley’s Critical Facilities Round Table (CFRT) in San Francisco. He has 40 years of engineering design and consulting experience working with critical facilities such as data centers, semiconductor fabs, nuclear power plants, and DOE’s nuclear R&D facilities. Bruce has also served as CTO and EVP of The Data Centers, LLC and Executive Editor of Mission Critical Magazine.

Bruce has been leading data center on-site power initiatives supporting gas & electric utility capacity planning and gas generator and substation conceptual designs for hyperscale and colocation operators to achieve fast-track power-to-site programs. He previously helped lead the design of a network of federal government SCIF data centers for a major hyperscale operator. He also led the design of a 100+MW self-powered data center campus with a dedicated 250MW / N+2 combined cycle gas-turbine power plant with tri-generation and other advanced features for which he was recognized as Finalist in the 2013 Data Center Dynamics NorAm annual Awards competition.

Earlier in his career, Bruce designed and supported the construction of many Nuclear Power Plants across the country, including design of General Atomics high temperature gas cooled reactor (HTGR) internals, General Electric Mark-1 BWR emergency core cooling systems, and Westinghouse PWR MEP balance of plant systems. He also supported feasibility studies for DOE’s N-Reactor.

Bruce has been selected as a technical advisor to DOE, EPA, CEC, LBNL, and PG&E Committees focused on Data Center Energy Efficiency, and he has provided data center technical presentations and panel discussions to audiences at about 50 Data Center conferences across the US. He is widely recognized for his leadership in the industry’s adaptation of data center aisle containment cooling solutions.
