Singapore – Software development firm Google has recently announced the successful completion of its latest data centre and cloud region campus expansion in Singapore. This achievement marks another milestone for the company, highlighting its total investments in technical infrastructure in the country reaching US$5b, up from US$850m in 2018. 

This strategic expansion aims to address the increasing demand for cloud services locally and around the world. It also reinforces the government’s move to establish the country as a regional data centre hub while supporting Singapore’s National AI Strategy 2.0, emphasising the importance of computer infrastructure to fuel AI-led economic development. 

Supporting initiatives include AI Trailblazers, Google for Startups Accelerator: AI First Singapore, and Skills Ignition SG, which complement these efforts.

Furthermore, the new facility also advances sustainable standards in infrastructure across Southeast Asia, with continued expansion of Google’s state-of-the-art data centre facilities in Singapore.

These data centres boast industry-leading sustainable features, designed for efficient resource management to support even the most demanding applications. The said facility is particularly crucial in tropical regions like Singapore, where precise cooling measures are imperative to prevent energy waste and maintain optimal data centre performance.

Kate Brandt, chief sustainability officer at Google, said, “Data centres serve as the growth engines for digital progress by providing the foundation for digital transformation and innovation. The expansion of our data centre campus in Singapore reaffirms our commitment to helping Southeast Asian organisations capitalise on digital opportunities while ensuring that growth is as sustainable as possible.”

“Google is deeply committed to managing our environmental footprint, playing a key role in supporting a just climate transition, and helping to accelerate the global transition to a net-zero future,” Kate concluded.
