SpaceDC to build largest Philipines hyperscale data centre

Data centre provider SpaceDC will construct the largest hyperscale data centre in the Philipines, a 72MW facility powered by 100% renewable energy

SpaceDC, a Singapore-based visionary data centre provider, has announced it is to build a new hyperscale data centre called MNL1. The green data centre will be located in Cainta, part of the Great Manila area, and will be fully powered with renewable energy, Space DC says. The facility is expected to open in 2022.

Darren Hawkins, CEO of SpaceDC, said: “The Philippines ranks second in terms of data center 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.”

At 43,000m², MNL1 will be the largest hyperscale data centre campus in the Philippines, and will deliver 72MW of critical power. With an outstanding PUE of 1.3, MNL1 will also lead in terms of energy efficiency and design, to minimise carbon footprint.

“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,” commented Ralph Davidson, Executive Director, Data Center Services for JLL, the appointed project construction manager.
