Positions Andhra Pradesh as the East Coast Data Center hub for India & SE Asia
Adani Group to invest Rs. 70,000 crores, potentially creating over 100,000 jobs over 20 years
In a development that will boost the country’s technology infrastructure and vitalize the concept of green data centres, the Government of Andhra Pradesh (GoAP) on Wednesday signed a MoU with the Adani Group to build Data Center Parks up to 5 GW capacities in and around Visakhapatnam over the next 20 years. This ambitious project would be a first-of-its-kind 100% renewable energy powered project in the world.
The GoAP along with the integrated infrastructure conglomerate Adani Group will develop the hyper-scale data centre market in the state, positioning AP as the east coast data centre hub for India and South East Asia. It will also be integrated with a cable landing station that will take advantage of the state’s long coastline to help provide the needed global connectivity and redundancy that the country needs to manage its exponential growth of data.
In line with the State Government’s visionary, IT policy and focus on promoting data centers, cloud infrastructure, and allied technology industries as well as renewable energy, the Adani Group will support the development of the digital and energy infrastructure in the state by investing over Rs.70, 000 crore, over a period of 20 years which in turn is expected to create in excess of 100,000 direct and indirect jobs across the state.
