Leading IT infrastructure and services company NTT has announced an investment of THB3 billion (approx. US$90 million) through NTT Global Data Centers Corporation for the development of its newest and largest data centre in Thailand.
The new Bangkok 3 Data Center (BKK3) will start operations in the second half of 2024 and will provide a maximum IT capacity of 12MW across approximately 4,000 m² of IT space when fully built out.
Located 57km from Bangkok Central at the Eastern Economic Corridor’s Amata City Chonburi industrial estate, the new infrastructure caters to hyperscalers and enterprises, providing them with flexible and scalable IT infrastructure, optimum power efficiency and cost-effectiveness to support high densities of up to 30KW per rack.
Sutas Kongdumrongkiat, CEO for NTT, Thailand, said: “Asia Pacific is a key growth region for NTT and as Thailand makes progress with Digital Transformation, the need for infrastructure to handle high volume real-time data transmission becomes increasingly important. We are thrilled to kickstart the construction of BKK3 and be at the forefront of the nation’s digitalisation ambitions.”
The new data centre is being constructed in line with NTT Group’s vision of Green Innovation toward 2040. The framework will help NTT towards achieving net zero emissions across its operations by 2030 and its value chain by 2040 – in lockstep with Thailand’s own commitment to achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.
