Once completed, the campus will support up to 72MW of capacity across three buildings.

"Data centers form a vital foundation of a thriving digital economy. STT Jakarta 1 not only provides critical digital infrastructure of the highest global quality, but also offers differentiated solutions to meet the current and future computing needs of both government and enterprises alike,” said Lionel Yeo, CEO, Southeast Asia, STT GDC.

First announced in May 2021, the campus is being developed under a joint venture with leading Indonesian conglomerate Triputra Group and global investment company Temasek (which owns STT GDC).

Triputra is an Indonesian conglomerate with interests in agribusiness, manufacturing, mining, and trade, which now wants to get into the data center sector.

"As we further develop the digital ecosystem to establish a robust foundation for innovation and growth, STT Jakarta 1 enables businesses to unlock their full potential and make meaningful contributions to the flourishing digital economy of Indonesia. Supported by a vibrant network of technology partners, we work together towards shared success," added Hendrikus Hendra Gozali, country head, Indonesia, PT STT GDC Indonesia.
