ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (STT GDC) has newly opened a new hyperscale data centre, STT Loyang – their largest facility in Singapore to date..
The six-storey facility is located at Loyang Close, and has a Gross Floor Area (GFA) of over 290,000 square feet (27,000 square metres), about the same size as Singapore’s Clementi Mall, and a Net Lettable Area (NLA) of over 111,000 square feet (10,700 square metres).
In line with STT GDC’s groupwide focus and commitment towards net carbon-neutral data centre operations by 2030, STT Loyang will support the STT GDC’s sustainability goals with a design power usage effectiveness (PUE) of under 1.3 and a host of sustainable features.
“STT Loyang will help us to meet strong customer demand and support the expansion of our existing capabilities. At the same time, this new facility has been designed and constructed for market-leading efficiencies without the reliability trade-offs,” said Bruno Lopez, President and Group CEO, ST Telemedia Global Data Centres.
“Singapore’s Green Plan 2030, and latest Green Building Masterplan has cast the spotlight on the need for sustainable growth, a theme that is consistent with our business vision of powering a sustainable digital future. As we continue our growth trajectory, we are also making every effort to remain prudent in terms of our carbon footprint and energy efficiency,” added Lopez.
Other features include:
- High efficiency cooling equipment that reduces overall energy consumption by between 30-40%, whilst enhancing the level of cooling control precision.
- High efficiency chillers with energy efficiency of up to 0.25kW/RT.
- A 2,000m² rooftop solar photovoltaic system feeding approximately 400MWh per annum of renewable zero-carbon energy directly into the facility power network, avoiding approximately 158 tonnes of CO2
- Approximately 80MVA of distributed UPS systems with 97% efficiency in double-conversion VFI mode.
- Flexible data hall layouts with significant equipment modularisation.
- Offsite pre-fabrication and containerisation of many of the electrical power systems including generator sets, UPS, switchboards and transformers.
- Dual on-site 66kV GIS substations.
