Vantage Data Centers is planning a new facility in Taipei, Taiwan.
Announced this week, the TPE1 data center will open in mid-2024.
Sat on a 2-acre site, the five-story facility will offer 16MW across 215,000 square feet (20,000 sqm) and be served power by local utility Taiwan Power Company (Taipower) via an on-site substation.
“Taipei is a prime location to serve customers across Asia as demand across the region continues to skyrocket, especially given the use of modern technologies such as AI,” said Raymond Tong, president of Vantage Data Centers, APAC. “Leveraging a skilled workforce, we look forward to opening the doors of this facility to continue building Taiwan’s digital hub and contributing to the market’s ongoing technological growth in sustainable ways. Vantage fully supports the government’s focus in adopting sustainable resources, and we are committed to reaching net zero carbon emissions across our global portfolio by 2030.”
The site will feature two meet-me rooms and use a closed-loop chilled water system generated through air-cooled chillers.
Vantage's APAC data center footprint includes facilities in operation and development in Australia, Malaysia, Japan, and Hong Kong.
