The 40MW greenfield facility will be located in the Hyderabad Information Technology and Engineering Consultancy City (HITEC City), a business district in the Madhapur area, and have a dedicated GIS substation within the site.

Last year CapitaLand-owned Ascendas India Trust announced plans to build its first data center campus in India. The campus in Airoli, Navi Mumbai, will comprise two buildings; the first building will comprise 325,000 sq ft and is scheduled to be ready by Q2 2024. The 6.6-acre greenfield site will be developed in phases up to 575,000 sq ft (53,400 sqm) and 90MW when fully built up.

Chatterjee previously told W.Media that the company is planning to develop data centers in at least five other markets across India.

“We are looking to set up data centers in Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai, Bengaluru, and Noida,” he said.

Capitaland has also previously signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Tamil Nadu government to build data centers in the Ambattur area of Chennai.
