ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (STT GDC) has announced plans to develop a second data centre campus in Johor, Malaysia.
Located in the Nusa Cemerlang Industrial Park in Iskandar Puteri, the campus is planned to provide up to 120 MW of critical IT capacity across 22 acres of land.
The campus will connect to STT Singapore 5, which serves as STT GDC’s regional interconnection hub.
Construction of the first building supporting 16MW in IT load is scheduled to begin over the next few months and is expected to be completed by 2025.
Earlier this month, STT GDC had announced its market entry into Malaysia through a partnership with Basis Bay to develop the joint venture partnership’s first data centre campus in Cyberjaya.
According to STT GDC, the new campus will achieve carbon-neutral operations from the start of its operations.
“We are excited to embark on this new phase of our growth. Our establishment of a second data centre campus in Malaysia underscores our unwavering commitment to advancing the country’s digital transformation,” said Lionel Yeo, Chief Executive Officer, Southeast Asia, STT GDC.
“Our expansion into Johor is a natural step forward as we deliver vital digital infrastructure services that not only meet the surging and ever-evolving demands of our customers for complex design and scalability, but also anticipate future needs, particularly high-performance computing workloads for AI and visual computing. We are committed to growing alongside our customers and aiding them in their global digitalisation efforts,”
