Evolution Data Centres (EDC) has signed a joint venture agreement with property developer Central Pattana PCL to design, build and operate a data centre in Bangkok.
The joint venture will see the development of a new 34 MW, sustainably-focussed, carrier-neutral data centre facility in Thailand. The new facility will be designed to minimise its impact on the environment.
“We are excited to be partnering with Central Pattana PCL to bring our expertise to Thailand,” said Darren Webb, Chief Executive Officer of Evolution Data Centres.
“Thailand is an important, high growth market, for us, and we are committed to delivering world-class infrastructure to support the country’s digital transformation. We have seen some of the major cloud providers recently move into the country, we look forward to combining the strengths of EDC and Central Pattana PCL to build and operate a hyper-scale, greener data centre, to underpin the future growth.”
Phoom Chirathivat, Head of Hotel and Alternative Investments, added, “Central Pattana is proud to partner with Evolution Data Centres to bring cutting-edge technology to Thailand. This joint venture marks a significant milestone for our company and is in line with our vision to become a leading mixed-use property developer regionally which includes digital infrastructure in Thailand. With EDC’s expertise in data centre solutions, we are confident that our partnership will contribute to the growth of Thailand’s digital economy.”
The first phase of the new Bangkok facility is expected to be operational in 2024.
