Hyperscale Data Center

According to the statement, CtrlS is building a hyperscale data centre on a 10-acre parcel of land in Chonburi, with a design capacity of up to 150 MW. This expansion marks CtrlS' first international market venture and its first hyperscale data centre in Thailand.

Strategic Location

The data centre's location in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) is advantageous due to its proximity to submarine cable landing stations (CLS) for existing and upcoming international cable systems, such as the Asia-America Gateway (AAG) and Asia Direct Cable (ADC), to be launched in the first quarter of 2024. This location positions the data centre as a point of interconnection with strong connectivity to other data centres, industrial estates, and global markets.

Digitalization and Connectivity

Thailand's digitalization efforts, deployment of 5G, and improved connectivity through submarine cables connecting countries like the USA, China, Japan, Singapore, and Taiwan make it an attractive hub for digital infrastructure.

NT's Telecommunication Infrastructure

National Telecom Public Company (NT) has developed a comprehensive telecommunication infrastructure in the Eastern Economic Corridor, featuring multiple connection points to neighbouring countries and worldwide coverage through submarine cable systems like AAE1, AAG, APG, FLAG, SJC, SMW-3, SMW-4, TIS, and ADC as well as PoPs (Point of Presence).

Lease Agreement

According to CtrlS, in July 2023, the company signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) with the Eastern Economic Corridor Office (EECO) to lease a 10-acre land parcel in Chonburi Province for 50 years to set up the hyper-scale data centre.
