Jul 11, 2023 | Posted by MadalineDunn

Hyderabad-based CtrlS Datacenters has signed a memorandum of agreement (MoA) with the eastern economic corridor office (EECO) of Thailand to lease a 10-acre parcel of land which will be used for a 150 MW datacenter campus. The lease will reportedly last for 50 years, and marks its first international market expansion and hyperscale data center in Thailand. 

The data center site reportedly offers proximity to submarine cable landing stations for AAG (Asia-America Gateway) and ADC (Asia Direct Cable) systems, and is also close to the EEC startup incubator.

Speaking about the expansion into Thailand, Sridhar Pinnapureddy, Chairman, CtrlS Datacenters Ltd, said that through the collaboration, it aims to serve customers' needs for digital services, both domestic and international. "The data centre is designed to meet hyperscalers' needs in addition to serving high end IT/compute needs of domestic enterprises," Pinnapureddy added. 

Pinnapureddy outlined that it sees the data center as a "unique opportunity" to contribute towards the development of Thailand's eastern region and offer a "robust diverse option for international customers and partners for establishing their footprint in the country and region." 

"Thailand is strategically well positioned at the centre of Southeast Asia and we strive to bring investments and international customers to the country through our data centre," Pinnapureddy said. 

"The investment of CtrlS Datacenters in EECd, Si Racha, Thailand by leasing about 25 rais (10 acres) for over 50 years will facilitate global trade and demand," commented Chula Sukmanop, Secretary-General of the Eastern Economic Corridor Office (EECO) of Thailand.
