Princeton Digital Group (PDG) has launched its flagship 48 MW data centre campus in India, MU1, built at a cost of US$300 million (S$407 million).

Located in Navi Mumbai, a city adjacent to Mumbai, the MU1 campus, with two buildings, covers around six acres of land and will deliver "secure and scalable" data centre capacity to hyperscale service providers – large cloud, content, commerce and fintech companies, the company said.

The new campus which has "state-of-the-art" internet infrastructure, has achieved India's IGBC Platinum certification

Along with IGBC Platinum certification, the highest standard certification for Green Buildings Certification and Uptime Tier III certification, the company said MU1 is the first Open Compute Project (OCP) certified data centre in India.

MU1 was completed in almost 20 months, ahead of scheduled despite global supply chain challenges and will be powered by up to 40 percent renewable energy and operate on minimal water consumption, the company said. 

PDG’s Chairman and CEO, Rangnath Salgame, said the firm was looking to deliver hyperscale capacity at global standards to customers in India. “We have a solid growth pipeline to establish more data centres in India,” he added. 

Established in 2017, Singapore-headquartered PDG is among Asia’s major hyperscale data centre providers with a presence in five countries with 20 data centres and 600 MW capacity.

PDG has several ongoing projects under construction, in Asia, the company said.

The company is backed by institutional investment firms, Warburg Pincus, Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan (OTPP) and Mubadala Investment Company (Mubadala).
