Singaporean telecommunications conglomerate Singtel has commenced the construction of DC Tuas, Singapore’s highest power density, hyper-connected green data center.
When operational in 2025, DC Tuas will offer 58 megawatts (MW) of IT load capacity to support the strong demand for high-quality, sustainable digital infrastructure while optimizing land, power and water use. The 120,000 square feet, eight-story facility is Singapore’s only data center to be integrated with a cable landing station, providing its customers unparalleled international and domestic connectivity and enhanced network performance, including lower latency and improved reliability.
DC Tuas is Singtel’s largest data center in Singapore to date and will support the Group’s decarbonization goals with its low power utilization effectiveness (PUE). DC Tuas will incorporate next-generation cooling capabilities that are able to support customers’ rack density of up to 80 kilowatts (kW) per rack with more efficient liquid cooling, thus lowering its PUE to below 1.3.
Singtel currently provides 60 MW of DC capacity in Singapore. The total capacity will grow to 118 MW when DC Tuas is operational in 2025. Ahead of its construction, DC Tuas has already received interest from customers, including hyperscalers, multinational and regional corporates, and Singapore enterprises.
In addition to its data centers in Singapore, Singtel has partnered with Telkom and Medco Power in Indonesia, and GULF and AIS in Thailand, to build data centers in Batam and Bangkok, respectively.
