Telin ‘Tops Out’ Its Third Data Centre In Singapore
With the topping-out of the five-story purpose-built, multi-tier data centre, Telin-3 is targeted to be operational by end of 3Q 2016.
Telin Singapore, a subsidiary of PT Telkom, has achieved a key milestone with completion of the main structural works for its third data centre in Singapore branded as Telin-3. With topping out of the 20,000–square-metre, five-storey building, this new generation data centre is targeted to be operational by end of the third quarter this year.
Speaking at the topping out ceremony, Alex J Sinaga, Group CEO of PT Telkom, commented, “We are pleased to celebrate this significant milestone today. It is with much excitement and anticipation that we look forward to end of the third quarter this year, when Telin-3 will go live. Telin-3 is one of the largest investments that PT Telkom has made in Singapore, which serves as an important regional hub for us. Telin-3 is therefore a pivotal launchpad in line with the Group’s strategic efforts to catapult PT Telkom into the global market.”
Telin-3 is located in the west of the island at the Singapore Data Centre Park — a joint initiative by the Singapore Infocomm Development Authority (IDA), Economic Development Board (EDB) and Jurong Town Corporation (JTC) to strengthen Singapore’s position as an economic and infocomm hub.
“The design intention and philosophy of Telin-3 will be able to deliver full suites of data centre solutions with the highest standard of service delivery, modularity and agility to meet various customers’ requirements,” said Septika N. Widyasrini, Telin Singapore CEO. “It will enable data-centric enterprises to accelerate digital transformation in today’s increasingly competitive market and helps them to manage the Total Cost of Ownership.
The facility is a purpose-built data centre, adopting multi-tier design in its system. This feature provides flexibility and modularity to customers, enabling them to select from a variety of tier ratings based on their business requirements. Telin-3 is Singapore’s first and only Tier-IV design certified data centre.
