Establishment of a Data Centre Park (DCP)

Introduction

The development of a Data Centre Park in Singapore is to strengthen Singapore's position as an economic hub by attracting MNCs and enterprises to set up their HQ and premium DC operations here. It will also help to entrench Singapore as an infocomm and media hub by having more premium DCs such as banks and Telco carriers located here. Such DC infrastructure will attract world-class Internet and media companies to host their content and services in Singapore, thus attracting more Internet traffic and international network providers. Ultimately, this will enhance Singapore's global connectivity and competitiveness.

What's New

  • Following the closure of the CFP, IDA will continue to explore the potential of having a chilled water plant in Data Centre Park. Chilled water service providers are invited to register their interest with IDA via the submission of an Expression of Interest (EOI) form.
