Digital Edge Announces Plans to Build South Korea's Largest Commercial Data Center

Digital Edge Announces Plans to Build South Korea's Largest Commercial Data Center

The data center will cost approximately KWR 1 trillion, or approximately USD 1 billion

In a significant development, Digital Edge has announced that it will be building a 120 megawatt (MW) facility in Bupyeong-gu, Incheon through a strategic partnership with SK Ecoplant. This will be South Korea's largest commercial data center upon completion.

“Korea has one of the fastest growing data center markets and this investment forms part of our ongoing commitment to this dynamic country, as we seek to bring the next generation of digital infrastructure to Asia. By partnering with SK Ecoplant, a trusted local developer, we will combine their development knowledge with our data center build and operations experience, to deliver the largest, state-of-the-art data center in the country,” said Samuel Lee, Chief Executive at Digital Edge.

Part of the company's expansion plans in South Korea, the data center will require a capital investment of more than KWR 1 trillion, or approximately USD 1 billion. The data center will be located in Bupyeong-gu, Incheon, which has easy access to Incehon International Airport and Seoul’s major business districts via the Seoul-Incheon Expressway. Moreover, the project will provide a natural extension to Digital Edge’s existing carrier dense location in Yeoksam (SEL1), with the two data centers linked via third party telco services as well as the Cross LinkTM product to bring a wealth of connectivity options to existing and future customers.
