Princeton Digital Group, Asia’s leading data center provider today unveiled its SG+ strategy with the announcement of a 96 MW data center campus in Batam. PDG’s SG+ strategy will enable customers to seamlessly expand their infrastructure from Singapore to highly scalable data center campuses in Singapore, Batam and Johor.

The announcement of PDG’s data center campus in Batam is the first part of this concerted
strategy, where PDG is developing data center sites in Batam and Johor in extension to the
company’s operations in Singapore. With an initial investment plan of close to US$1 billion, the campus will be built on 15 acres of land in Batam and will comprise four buildings of up to 24 MW capacity each. Power is fully secured for the entire 96 MW capacity.

“As a Singapore-headquartered Pan-Asia data center operator, PDG is at the forefront of
enabling customers to continue leveraging the unique set of characteristics that have made
Singapore such a successful hub for the region. Our SG+ strategy is aimed at providing a
seamless infrastructure growth roadmap for our customers,” said Rangu Salgame, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Princeton Digital Group. “The new campus in Batam reinforces our growth strategy and solidifies our already strong presence across the region in China, Singapore, India, Indonesia, and Japan.”

Batam is an island in Indonesia’s Riau Islands Province, just 20 km south of Singapore. PDG’s campus is located within Nongsa Digital Park (NDP), an integrated digital park in Nongsa on the North-Eastern tip of Batam. In June 2021, the Indonesian Government designated Nongsa as a Special Economic Zone for digital economy and tourism. Nongsa and Batam have been described by Indonesian President Joko Widodo as a “digital bridge” between Singapore and Indonesia, as the demand for technology talent, sustainable power, land to develop data centers, and capacity continues to grow.

“The climate impact of digital transformation has redefined the way we develop and operate our data centers. PDG aims to build next-generation, best-in-class green data centers, and we will be working closely with local partners and regulators to incorporate sustainable and renewable energy initiatives to power our Batam data center. Furthermore, we are exploring tropical data center solutions as part of our strategic ESG roadmap towards achieving our net-zero emission goals,” said Asher Ling, Managing Director, Singapore. “This is a very exciting time for data center developers as we develop new standards and create benchmarks in sustainability.”

Sustainability is a core business focus for PDG. The company’s sustainability strategy is driven by procurement of renewable energy, energy and resource efficiency, green design and construction and technology and innovation. In the second quarter of 2023, the company will release the second edition of its Sustainability Report.

“PDG’s investment into Nongsa underscores the growth opportunities that Southeast Asia offers to companies. Resilient, reliable, and stable infrastructure are key enablers in the digital economy, and PDG’s latest expansion in Nongsa will enhance its capability to meet the growing needs of digital companies seeking to expand in the region,” said Herman Loh, Vice-President & Head, Regional Partnerships, Singapore Economic Development Board.

“We are happy to work with PDG as they build their 96 MW hyperscale project to provide
seamless and stable data center capacity to their customers. PDG’s investment in Nongsa
Digital Park further strengthens the SEZ’s position as a data center hub in the region. We look forward to working closely with PDG as the company continues to scale as a Pan-Asia leader in digital infrastructure,” said Muhammad Rudi, Chairman, Badan Pengusahaan Batam (BP Batam), Batam Indonesia Free Zone Authority.

Headquartered in Singapore, PDG is a leader in the Asian hyperscaler market. The company launched its 48 MW data center in Mumbai in December 2022 and is expanding rapidly in Asia with a total capacity of 600 MW across a portfolio of 20 data centers in five key markets. Its 100 MW data center in Saitama, Tokyo, is scheduled for completion in 2024.
