Ka Vin Wong, Chief Executive of Data Center First, said: "Nongsa One has arrived in Nongsa Digital Park and we are delighted to be the new crossroad for this bold vision of a digital future for Singapore and Indonesia. This is made possible by our growing customer community who are providing independent services at this new business crossroad.

Features of Data Center First’s Nongsa One data centre
Nongsa One sits on 276,600 square feet of land located in the Special Economic Zone of Nongsa Digital Park. The design for this 30MW campus DC gives Nongsa One the ability to independently scale its electricity needs for the two buildings on the campus. This new powerhouse design will be an earmark feature for all of Data Center First's campus projects.
The arrival of Nongsa One in Nongsa Digital Park will allow digital enterprises can exploit the world-class infrastructure to protect their current deployed digital assets against natural disasters, Data Center First claims.
In a statement, the company said that Nongsa Digital Park provides the perfect alternative as a disaster-neutral location to safeguard Indonesia's booming digital economy. The huge numbers of subsea fibres available from multiple telecom service providers connecting at Nongsa to both Singapore and Jakarta make Nongsa Digital Park the most effective ingress and egress network point for customers that needs to bring data in or out of Indonesia efficiently.
Nongsa Digital Park with Nongsa One is truly the embodiment of the Digital Bridge vision jointly defined by the government of Singapore and Indonesia. Data Center First is excited to take a leadership position in implementing this vision.
Talking about the launch, Mike Wiluan, CEO Nongsa Digital Park said: "We are proud to welcome Data Centre First Pte Ltd's 30MW Data Center to the growing ecosystem of digital companies established already in Nongsa Digital Park. As the first data centre development in the Nongsa Special Economic Zone, this cutting-edge infrastructure demonstrates NDP's commitment to attracting both best-in-class talent and key global infrastructure partners while affirming our role as a 'Digital Bridge' to Indonesia's digitisation roadmap.
“We look forward to this collaboration with Data Centre First Pte Ltd which will most certainly catalyse more foreign investment to support Indonesia's overall digital economic growth,” he concluded.
