Meralco unit to power biggest data center

Meralco Energy, a subsidiary of Manila Electric Co., is set to power the largest hyperscale data center of ST Telemedia Global Data Centres Philippines (STT GDC Philippines).

“We are on track for significant progress by the third quarter of this year and anticipate completing the core structure and energizing power equipment for the data center. This will be a major milestone and demonstrates our ability to deliver on this project,” STT GDC Philippines president and chief executive Carlo Malana said.

The collaboration, which will foster innovation and drive technological advancement in the digital industry, will pave the way for the energization of the facility in Fairview,  Quezon City this year.

 MSERV was awarded the contract for the supply and installation of key data center electrical equipment such as high voltage gas-insulated switch gears, high voltage oil-immersed transformers, and medium voltage dry type transformers in November last year.

“Meralco’s commitment to providing reliable power is a significant factor in our selection for our STT Fairview data center project,” said STT GDC Philippines’ design and construction head Pierre San Diego.

STT GDC Philippines is a joint venture among Globe Telecom Inc., Ayala Corp. and Singapore-based ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (STT GDC). It operates data centers in Metro Manila, Cavite and Davao.

“This collaboration goes beyond just securing electricity; it fuels a shared vision for a transformative digital future that unlocks innovation and growth across the nation,” San Diego said.

 MSERV, one of the largest energy service companies that offer tailor-fit end-to-end energy solutions, is looking to deepen its collaboration with STT GDC Philippines.

“With  MSERV as your partner, we go beyond traditional offerings of after-the-meter facilities and electrical works. We also recognize the critical role of energy efficiency in promoting a clean, safe, and sustainable environment for data center facilities. We are ready to deliver customized energy efficiency solutions to meet your unique requirements,” MSERV president and chief executive Ronald Torres said.

“MSERV is deeply committed to our ongoing partnership. Together, we are not just providers of data center services but digital enablers towards a progressive future. We hope to continue playing a significant role in fostering innovation and driving technological advancement to new heights,” Torres said.
