Ankit Saraiya, wholetime director, TEECL, outlined: “With this goal, we have actually settled a strategy to establish 250MW of information centers throughout India over the next five years.”

The company has already signed an MoU with the government of Tamil Nadu to work on a data center project in Chennai, which will be powered by 111MW of wind energy. TEECL has a second project that is located in Kolkata and is reported to be the same size as the first project, powered by biogas.

Commenting on the rollout, Saraiya said: “Both Chennai and Kolkata data center projects will comprise around $340 million or one-third of the total planned $1 billion investment.

We are well-funded internally to build these projects.”
