Telin Singapore announced in early June that it had broken ground on its new Singapore data center.
The five-story facility, located in the Singapore Data Center Park in Jurong, will be Telin's third data center in the country. The company, which is fully owned by PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia Telkom Group, also operates a Changi data center and a private area inside Global Switch's Tai Seng data center. Telin Singapore was awarded the initial plot within the Data Center Park which the company plans to use for an ambitious project of creating between six and eight data centers for an estimated available rack space of more than 1 million square feet.
The Jurong data center is being constructed on more than 86,000 square feet of land and will offer a gross floor area of over 215,000 square feet. The new site is being designed to meet the qualifications for a minimum Tier 3 and Tier 4 certification from the Uptime Institute for availability and reliability standards.
"Telin Singapore Data Center and Telecommunication Hub will strengthen Telkom Group's strategic initiatives for international expansion," said Alex J. Sinaga, group CEO of PT Telkom Indonesia. "Our investment in Telin-3 will solidify Telin Singapore's position as a strategic hub for Telkom Group to connect Indonesia to the rest of the world."
Septika Noegraheni Widyasrini, CEO of Telin Singapore, said that Telkom Group has been deeply invested in building and acquiring strategic data center assets in the region over the last few years, and the new Singapore data center will help to continue that effort by housing the company's current and future infrastructure.
