BAM Digital Realty to Invest Rs 2,000 Crore in New Mumbai Data Center: Report

Data Center firm BAM Digital Realty, a joint venture between Brookfield Infrastructure and Digital Realty, has announced a significant investment in developing a state-of-the-art data centre in Mumbai, India. The company plans to invest more than Rs 2,000 crore (approximately USD 250 million) in this expansion as part of its strategic growth plan in the country, according to a Livemint report.




Second Facility in India

The new data centre will be BAM Digital Realty's second facility in India and will be constructed on a 2.15-acre land in Chandivali, Mumbai. With an expected capacity of 35 megawatts (MW) of IT load upon completion, the facility will significantly contribute to the company's total planned capacity in India, which will reach 135 MW.

According to the report, the selection of the location was driven by its favourable proximity to customers and central position within the bustling metropolitan area of Mumbai. This investment in the city is a testament to BAM Digital Realty's commitment to establishing a strong foothold in the Indian market.

BAM Digital Realty designs, builds, owns, and operates top-tier data centre assets. The company's expansion efforts in India align with the increasing demand for advanced data infrastructure and services in the country.

"Mumbai is India's primary connectivity hub and leading international internet gateway, hosting the highest number of subsea cables landing in India. It also offers robust power infrastructure and dense fibre connectivity, critical for the high-power compute workloads that support new technologies, including artificial intelligence (AI)," the report quoted the release.
