The company has started construction of phase-1 of a new Greenfield data centre facility, STT Noida DC-1, in Noida, Uttar Pradesh
A data centre in Noida will be developed with an investment of Rs 1,100 crore by the Singapore-based ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (STT GDC).
As part of its multi-megawatt capacity expansion plan across India, the company has started construction of phase-1 of a new Greenfield data centre facility, STT Noida DC-1, in Noida, Uttar Pradesh.
Phase-1 of this facility that is expected to be completed by Q2, CY2022, will offer up to 18MW of critical IT load.
“The STT Noida facility, once fully built, can support up to 35MW IT power capacity spread across five acres of land. Our decision to expand in Noida is driven by the continuing rapid growth in the Indian data centre industry supporting the massive digital transformation that the country is experiencing”, said Sumit Mukhija, CEO of STT GDC India.
The facility, spread across an area of more than five acres, will be developed in two phases with an overall capacity of up to 35MW critical IT load and enable both enterprises and hyper-scale customers to future-proof their expansion options in the northern region.
The phase-1 (STT Noida DC-1) with a capacity of 18MW, will be one of the largest facility in North India. The project will add up to 35 MW of critical IT load to STT GDC India’s total IT capacity.
“The promise of Noida emerging as a new Data Centre hub is well supported by progressive policy impetus at both the Central and State governments. We look forward to leading from the front as we expand and continue to support clients with an unwavering commitment to uninterrupted business continuity”, said Mukhija.
Ensuring industry leading uptime, reliability, scalability and flexibility to customers, the purpose-built data centre will be constructed with a modular design. The facility will be carrier-neutral with a dense network through three diverse fibre entry paths and other customized connectivity options for customers.
In the region, this project will help provide the data centre infrastructure to support digital growth and generate employment over the entire lifecycle of data centre construction and long-term operations, the company said.
STT GDC (India), a majority-owned subsidiary STT GDC, is a leading data centre service provider with the largest data centre footprint in the country.
STT GDC India has been managing the country’s largest raised floor area and critical IT load of over 135 MW, with now 19 facilities across nine major cities Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Chennai, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Pune and Noida serving over 1,000 customers, including many Fortune 500 companies.
