SpaceDC to build largest data centre in the Phillipines
SpaceDC will be working with global real estate services firm JLL to build the largest data centre in the Philippines.
The data centre will be called MNL1 and will be situated in Cainta, part of Greater Manila, with a prospective opening data of later this year.
At 43,000 metres squared, the data centre will be the largest in the Philippines and will deliver 72 MW of critical power while also being fully powered with renewable energy.
Darren Hawkins, CEO of SpaceDC said: “The Philippines ranks second in terms of data centre growth in Southeast Asia.
“With only 47MW of available capacity in the country it is a dramatically underserved market. We are excited to be a first mover in a new market where we see our customers are investing heavily in.”
In 2021, the company announced it would be expanding its presence in the Indonesian data centre market with the announcement of another data centre in Jakarta called JAK1.
The company also has its NCR1 data centre in India.
Ralph Davidson, executive director for data centre services for JLL added: “SpaceDC is in the right place at the right time to take advantage of the strong customer interest we are seeing in the Philippines.
“MNL1’s design is setting new standards in terms of technology, quality and operational excellence in the Philippines.”
