Telin Singapore, a fully-owned subsidiary of PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia International, has held a ground breaking ceremony for the construction of a 20,000 sq m data centre and telecommunications hub located at Singapore’s Data Centre Park (DCP) in Jurong.

The new five-storey facility will be the third data centre owned and managed by Telin, whose other existing data centres in Singapore are located in Changi and Tai Seng.

The new facility, Telin-3, will address the growing demand for premium data centre services to support Singapore’s Smart Nation vision, and also demand from the region and global markets where Telin Singapore is able to play a pivotal role in providing reliable, secured and seamless regional and global telecommunications connectivity services.

Ms. Rini M. Soemarno, Minister of State Owned Enterprises of Indonesia and Minister Lee Yi Shyan, Senior Minister of State for Trade and Industry and National Development of the Republic of Singapore, jointly officiated the groundbreaking of Telin-3 today at DCP in Jurong on 5 June.

Telin-3 will be completed by the third quarter of 2016. Telin said the facility will be built to meet multi-tier design, construct and operate to meet mission critical and high power computing applications and operational requirements, and provide fault tolerance and concurrent maintainability for mechanical cooling and power systems.

Alex J. Sinaga, group chief executive officer of PT Telkom Indonesia, said the Telin Singapore data centre and telecommunication hub will strengthen Telkom Group’s strategic initiatives for international expansion. “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.”
