Facebook's first Asian data centre in Singapore

Partners Rajesh Sreenivasan, Norman Ho and Shemane Chan are advising social media giant Facebook on its S$1.4 billion first-in-Asia data centre in Singapore. The landmark Singapore data centre is located in Tanjong Kling (formerly known as Data Centre Park) and will be an 11-storey, 1.8 million square feet facility estimated to start operations in 2022, and is completely powered by renewable energy and new statepoint liquid cooling system, which minimises power and water consumption. It also features a facade made out of a perforated lightweight material. The negotiations involve Jurong Town Corporation, Public Utilities Board, Info-communications Media Development Authority and the Economic Development Board.
