Vijayawada: In a development that will boost the country’s technology infrastructure and vitalise the concept of green data centres, the Government of Andhra Pradesh (GoAP) on Wednesday signed an MoU with Adani Group to build Data Centre 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 per cent 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.
The Adani Group will support the development of digital and energy infrastructure in the state by investing over `70,000 crore, over a period of 20 years which in turn is expected to create an excess of 1,00,000 direct and indirect jobs....
