CtrlS Datacenters Ltd, Asia’s largest Rated-4 Datacenter (DC) operator, has signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with Eastern Economic Corridor Office (EECO) to lease a 10-acre (25-rai) land parcel for 50 years located at Chonburi Province.
The land will be used to build a 150 MW datacenter greenfield data center campus and marks CtrlS’ first international market expansion as well as its first hyperscale data center in Thailand.
At a time when the digitalization across Thailand, deployment of 5G and improved connectivity with highly efficient submarine cables with countries such as China, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan and the United States makes it an attractive hub for digital infrastructure.
The data center development in the Eastern Economic Corridor will attract international and domestic hyperscale and enterprise customers.
Speaking on the MoA,
CtrlS’ datacenter site at EEC offers proximity to submarine cable landing stations for AAG (Asia-America Gateway) and ADC (Asia Direct Cable) systems, making the data center a point of connection equipped with submarine and terrestrial cable networks to connect to other data centers and industrial estates.
It is close to the EEC startup incubator and is elevated relative to flood-prone areas (with Mean Sea Level >40m). The Eastern Corridor is geographically diverse from Bangkok and is at the intersection of multiple fiber paths north and south.
CtrlS shares the corporate philosophy that matches with EEC’s three main missions:
Sustainable area-based development
Comprehensive infrastructure and connectivity
Promote advanced technology and innovation.
The company’s presence in the EEC region is expected to bring new investments and jobs to Thailand.
