YCO Cloud Centers is building a 12MW data centre located in Batangas, in the Philippines.
This purpose built, 12MW Tier III/Tier III+ compliant data centre is designed to meet market demand for co-location, build-to-suit, enterprise, hyperscale, powered shell, and private data hall suites, the company said in a statement.
Each 1,400 SM data hall is designed to provide tenants with 3,000 kW of critical IT load. The project has been conceived to provide an internationally consistent product based on a foundation of flexibility, reliability, customization, security, durability.
The phased development plan begins with the construction of the site, a 10,000 SM, two-story shell and baseline interior improvements along with the first of four (4) data halls. The site is 15,077 SM located within the Light Industry and Science Park IV (LISP IV), Malvar, Batangas, Philippines.
YCO Cloud Centers (YCC) has been formed to take advantage of the growing demand for data centers and digital infrastructure in the Philippines, particularly serving the greater Manila region. The group is an affiliate of JJYnchausti Ventures, Inc., which builds on its long-standing reputation of originating and managing two successful commercial and industrial enterprises throughout the Philippines.
To enhance redundancy, concurrent maintenance, and operational flexibility, the project includes efficient and economical electrical solutions custom-engineered to support densities in excess of 200 W/SF. Multi-tier, physical and virtual security platforms are included to protect the customers’ data and infrastructure from internal and external threats.
Cooling system includes chilled water system with N+2 CRAH units per data hall, scalable N+1 air-cooled chillers, hot aisle, cold aisle containment systems, 30kW per cabinet air side max and low PUE design. Data centre facilities will be built and maintained to achieve sustainability goals, energy efficiency, and reduction of environmental impact, the company said.
Further,the site is within LISP IV, a science and technology business park developed by Science Park of the Philippines, Inc (SPPI), the largest private developer of industrial estates in the Philippines. The 170-hectare industrial estate project was master planned by US-based Sasaki and Associates and hosts a number of Fortune 1000 and Fortune 500 companies.
It is strategically located with proximity to critical infrastructure such as substations, ports, and power plants, a own dedicated 100MW substation, with two transformers supplying redundant power to the park along with multiple, in-place fiber networks, integrated storm water management system, and is relatively low risky with regard to natural hazards, including being in an area safe from earthquake faults, landslides, and liquefaction.
The data centre market in the Philippines is seeing significant growth and is expected to see a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.4 per cent between 2021-2026, with investments reaching up to $535 million by 2026.
