ODATA has launched ST02, its second hyperscale data centre located in San Bernardo, Chile.
The new site will expand ODATA’s total IT capacity in Chile to roughly 80 MW, with ST02 providing up to 40.6 MW of IT load. The facility will also benefit from an on-site substation and 60 MVA of utility power supplied by dual feeds to the site.
“One notable point in the construction of our second data centre in the country was our nimbleness and agility in adapting to Chilean regulations to ensure that the site complies with all legal requirements without affecting the agreed delivery time,” said Ricardo Alário, ODATA’s LATAM CEO.
“We have effectively navigated diverse environments with varying building and zoning legislation and often, high complexity. ODATA has been successful in delivering all our projects in Latin America precisely because we understand each region and its peculiarities, always striving to maintain quality, agility, and security for our customers.”
In addition to the new facility, ODATA has said it will also expand its ST01 data centre campus, with a second building due to be built at the site.
“In addition to being fully licensed and operational, DC ST01 is powered by contracted renewable energy, reflecting our strong commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility,” added Alário.
“Chile has proven to be a strategic destination for hyperscale customers in Latin America. ODATA’s expansion in the country provides our customers with flexible, scalable, connected, and reliable data centre services in a highly sought-after region.”
ODATA was acquired by parent company Aligned Data Centers earlier in 2023.
