Vantage Data Centres expands its Asia Pacific footprint to Taipei with 16MW data centre

Vantage Data Centres, a leading global provider of hyperscale data centre campuses, has announced its entrance into Taipei, Taiwan’s largest data centre market. The company will open TPE1, a 16MW, 215,000 square foot (20,000 square metres) data centre in mid 2024.

Sited on two acres (one hectare), the new five-storey facility will be located in Taiwan’s capital city just 35 minutes from the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport. In alignment with the local government’s focus on sustainable energy sources, the TPE1 campus will be constructed in accordance with Vantage’s “sustainable by design” blueprint for energy-efficient operations to deliver industry-leading power usage effectiveness (PUE) and water usage effectiveness (WUE).

The campus will be powered by Taiwan Power Company (Taipower), the local utility provider who is actively developing renewable energy and is committed to introducing low carbon, clean energy. TPE1 will deliver redundancies across all systems to ensure Vantage’s world-class uptime.

Vantage selected Taipei for its crucial role as an established hub supporting Taiwan’s digital transformation, as well as its rich connectivity ecosystem and submarine cable access. Driven by growing cloud service adoption and demand for artificial intelligence, the Taipei data centre market is expected to more than double from $1.42 billion in 2022 to $3.21 billion by 2028.

“Taipei is a prime location to serve customers across Asia as demand across the region continues to skyrocket, especially given the use of modern technologies such as AI,” said Raymond Tong, president of Vantage Data Centres, APAC. “Leveraging a skilled workforce, we look forward to opening the doors of this facility to continue building Taiwan’s digital hub and contributing to the market’s ongoing technological growth in sustainable ways. Vantage fully supports the government’s focus in adopting sustainable resources, and we are committed to reaching net zero carbon emissions across our global portfolio by 2030.”
