ST Telemedia Global Data Centres’ (STT GDC) Indonesian operation, PT STT GDC Indonesia, has announced the structural completion of its first data centre facility in Indonesia - STT Jakarta 1.

This building is part of the data centre campus being developed by STT GDC under a joint venture with Indonesian conglomerate Triputra Group and Singapore-based global investment company Temasek.

Once completed, the data centre campus will support up to 72 MW of critical IT capacity, with STT Jakarta 1 supporting up to 19.5 MW when fully operational in the second quarter of 2023.

STT Jakarta 1 is strategically located in Bekasi Regency, close to Jakarta's eastern border and has a gross floor area (GFA) of 18,000 square metres.

The data centre will be optimised for hyperscale operators as well as Indonesian and multinational businesses across the banking and finance, content, gaming and e-commerce industries, the company said in an announcement.

As part of its ongoing expansion plans, PT STT GDC Indonesia has inked a land contract to build a second data centre facility at the campus.

STT Jakarta 1 will be a TIA-942 Rated-3 facility that will provide “high levels of redundancy” in terms of power, storage, computing and network capacity, a company spokesperson said.

PT STT GDC Indonesia will also seek certification by Uptime Tier-3 Tier Certification of Design Documents, LEED Gold, various ISO qualifications and Threat Vulnerability Risk Assessment (TVRA) to ensure an optimal and secure operational environment.

The spokesperson said that, in line with STT GDC's groupwide focus towards achieving net carbon-neutral data centre operations globally, STT Jakarta 1’s data centre operations will be carbon-neutral from day one.

PT STT GDC Indonesia has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with PT Mora Telematika Indonesia (Moratelindo), one of Indonesia's largest telecommunications infrastructure and network providers.

Moratelindo will set up a point-of-presence (PoP) in STT Jakarta 1 to serve the domestic, regional and international connectivity needs of customers in the data centre campus.
