UK-headquartered consultancy Turner & Townsend has won a contract to provide project and cost management services for a new $115m data centre and telecommunications hub in Singapore.
The five-storey, 20,000-sq-m hub will be the third of its kind opened by Telin Singapore, and the first at the newly opened Data Center Park in the Jurong district, in the western part of the island.
Singapore has seen a surge in demand for data centres and data management services, Turner & Townsend said.
The data centre is scheduled for completion in 2016.
Telin Singapore is a wholly owned subsidiary of PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia International (Telin), which in turn is owned by Telkom Group, Indonesia’s largest telecommunications company.
Commenting on the appointment, Brian Shuptrine, Director said: "Turner & Townsend has established a strong reputation for delivering purpose-built data centres and complex multinational programmes globally, and we are delighted to be part of such a groundbreaking project in Singapore’s telecoms sector."
Ms. Septika Noegraheni Widyasrini, CEO of Telin Singapore, added:
"Telin-3 marks an important milestone for Telin Singapore. Telin-3 is our first facility in the Data Center Park. Telkom Group has invested heavily in the last few years to build and to acquire strategic assets, and now we will house our existing and future infrastructure at Telin-3 upon completion."
Facilitated by the government of Singapore, the Data Center Park in Jurong is planned to accommodate up to eight data centres.
