STT GDC India said the data centre campus with IT capacity of 18 MW will come up with an estimated investment of Rs 600 crore in the initial phase.

A land parcel of nearly three acre has been identified by the investors in Noida to set up the data centre campus, which would be scalable to 36 MW IT load data centre capacity in the second phase with an additional investment of Rs 500 crore excluding the land cost.

After the completion of the second phase, the total estimated investment would be nearly Rs 1,100 crore with nearly 80 direct job opportunities and 1,000 indirect and induced employment avenues.

The proposed data centre campus is aimed at providing services to major cloud players, hyper-scalers and large enterprise clients.

Alok Kumar, additional chief secretary, Industrial Development, said the campus was located within easy access of the industrial hub and the national capital with seamless international connectivity.

He said there was a significant presence of industry and IT majors in and around Noida, which would aid in quickly evolving the region as a major data centre hub in north India.

“In view of the web-based and digitally driven economy gaining prominence, the state government is preparing new data centre policy with the objective of creating state-of-the-art data and IT ecosystem to meet the requirements of industry, enterprises and citizens,” Alok Kumar said.
