Feb 06, 2023 | Posted by MadalineDunn

Key Point has announced the launch of a new data center in Primorsky Krai in far east Russia. The Russian data center developer has outlined that at full build-out, the facility will have capacity for 880 racks and 10MW. Its first phase saw the construction of two modules with a total capacity of 440 racks, and is expected to be 90 percent leased by the end of the first quarter of this year. Meanwhile, the second phase will begin this month and is projected to be completed in the first quarter of 2024.

According to the company, the project's investment has seen more than '1.5 billion rubles,' which included funding from the Russian state development corporation VEB.RF.

Speaking about the development, Alexander Martynyuk, CEO of Key Point Group, said: "We built the data center on schedule and passed the certification of an international institute, actually confirming the high reliability of the implemented project. Thus, we managed not only to keep our word given at the project launch stage, but also to provide businesses and residents of Primorye with a unique infrastructure that will give impetus to the development of the region and ensure the reliability and availability of new high-tech services." 

Meanwhile, VEB.RF deputy chairman Artem Dovlatov added: "The development of information infrastructure creates a reserve for the speedy introduction of fundamentally new and promising technologies and services in the Far East, such as 5G communication networks, artificial intelligence, unmanned vehicles. The launch of a data center in Primorsky Krai will increase the level of availability and sustainability of digital services, and will also help improve the investment attractiveness of the macroregion."
