Singapore-based ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (STT GDC) has partnered with Indonesian conglomerate Triputra Group as well as Temasek to develop a new data centre operating platform in Jakarta.
The joint venture plans to build their first data centre campus in the Greenland International Industrial Centre, located in Kota Deltamas, Cikarang, Bekasi. It will support the development of multiple buildings and up to 72 megawatts of critical IT capacity.
Construction of the first phase is expected to start in the coming months and is anticipated to be completed by first quarter of 2023.
“This joint venture marks our strategic entry into the Indonesia data centre market and is an important step for STT GDC to reinforce its position as a leading data centre player in Asia-Pacific,” said Bruno Lopez, president and group CEO of STT GDC.
“I am confident that our expertise in designing, building, and operating data centres in Asia’s largest markets, combined with Triputra’s experience operating across diverse industries in the local Indonesian market and Temasek’s global investment insights and experience in Indonesia will put us in good stead to serve the needs of Indonesia’s vibrant digital economy,” said Lopez.
Arif Rachmat, director at Triputra Group, noted that the Government of Indonesia initiated the National E-commerce Roadmap and the Roadmap for Indonesia Digital 2020 and 2024 to support an inclusive digital economy.
“Indonesia’s demand for digital and cloud services is growing exponentially and there is no better time for us to be in the data centre industry,” said Rachmat.
With this partnership, STT GDC achieves greater portfolio diversity and strengthens its Asian data centre network to now include the top three most populous countries in Asia namely China, India and Indonesia as well as the strategic locations of Singapore, Seoul and Bangkok.
