Vantage Data Centers debuting in Taiwan with Taipei outpost

Vantage Data Centers is debuting in Taiwan with the planned opening in mid-2024 of its TPE1 project, which is  a 16-MW, 20,000-square meters data centre.

The new five-story facility will be located in Taiwan’s capital city just 35 minutes from the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. 

In alignment with the local government’s focus on sustainable energy sources, the TPE1 campus will be constructed in accordance with Vantage’s “sustainable by design” blueprint for energy-efficient operations to deliver industry-leading power usage effectiveness (PUE) and water usage effectiveness (WUE). 

The campus will be powered by Taiwan Power Company (Taipower), the local utility provider who is actively developing renewable energy and is committed to introducing low carbon, clean energy. 

TPE1 is intended to deliver redundancies across all systems to ensure uptime for the United States-based company.

Vantage chose Taipei for its crucial role as an established hub supporting Taiwan’s digital transformation, as well as its rich connectivity ecosystem and submarine cable access. 

Raymond Tong, president of Vantage Data Centers in the Asia-Pacific region, said that 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.

“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,” said Tong.
