Telin Singapore - a subsidiary of PT Telkom - has completed the main structural works for its third data centre in Singapore named Telin-3.
Telin has topped out the 20,000 square metre, five-storey facility which is set to be operational by end of the third quarter this year.
"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," said Alex J Sinaga, Group CEO of PT Telkom, in a press release.
Telin-3 is a joint initiative by Infocomm Development Authority (IDA), Economic Development Board (EDB), and Jurong Town Corporation. The new data centre is located in the west of the island at the Singapore Data Centre Park.
"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, CEO of Telin Singapore. "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."
