The data centre at Airoli, Navi Mumbai, provides 48 MW of IT capacity across two buildings. The campus will deliver scalable data centre capacity to hyperscalers — large cloud, content, commerce and fintech companies.

“The launch of MU1 further strengthens our position as a leading Pan-Asia data centre operator, that is focused on creating sustainable value and being an enabler of digital growth,” said Rangu Salgame, Chairman, CEO and Co-Founder of PDG.

PDG delivered MU1 within 20 months of its announcement and ahead of its scheduled timeline despite global supply challenges and disruptions.

MU1 will be powered up to 40 percent by renewable energy and will operate on minimal water consumption.

Singapore-headquartered PDG is a market leader in Asia’s hyperscale data centre market with presence in five countries with a portfolio of 20 data centers and 600 MW capacity.

“PDG has plans to scale and expand across India and is also committed to the cause of grooming young engineering talent into leaders of tomorrow,” said Vipin Shirsat, Managing Director, India, PDG.

PDC is backed by institutional investment firms like Warburg Pincus, Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan (OTPP) and Mubadala Investment Company (Mubadala).
