ST Telemedia Global Data Centres is building another data center in Singapore.
The company announced the construction of STT Defu 3 this week, its eighth local facility and the latest addition to its flagship Defu campus in the city-state.
“With the ever-growing need for more data processing and storage capacity, building a new facility will enable STT GDC to meet the skyrocketing demand for capacity and expand on our existing technologies,” said Bruno Lopez, STT GDC President and Group CEO.
STT continues Singapore expansion
The seven-story facility at Defu Avenue 1 will have an IT load capacity of 15MW, taking the total capacity at the Defu campus to 40MW. The 156,000 sq ft (14,500 sq m) site will meet the BCA-IMDA Green Mark Platinum and LEED v4 benchmarks and is expected to be completed by Q3 2022.
“The Defu and Tai Seng industrial estates are part of a fast-growing data center cluster in northeast Singapore. Expanding our STT Defu campus underscores our dominance in this data center zone and in Singapore where we are leading with a significant footprint of eight data centers in multiple regions,” said Clement Goh, STT GDC CEO for Southeast Asia.
“This campus strategy enables our customers to easily expand within and to other STT GDC campuses nearby as well as tap on the rich connectivity that serves the growing demands in the Asia Pacific region. This has given customers the confidence that we can support their high-growth requirements in a cost-efficient manner.”
Last month the company pledged to become carbon neutral by 2030, with Lopez saying 43 percent of the company’s energy is already derived from zero-carbon renewable sources.
“Operating our business sustainably is a core tenet of our values and this is reflected in the design ethos for each new data center globally, where we seek to embed the latest technologies in order to bring even more sustainable solutions to bear and create new value for our customers, shareholders, and people,” said Lopez.
