Jakarta Indonesia, December 14th, 2022 – SEAX Global/ SEAX Indonesia Pratama, the preferred choice for connectivity solutions across Southeast Asia™, today announced it has successfully completed the acquisition of an 8,400 sqm site in BSD Technopark, South Tangerang, Indonesia for its new Data Centre Campus.
SEAX Global is a neutral ICT infrastructure and solutions provider with connectivity infrastructure in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore. This is SEAX Global first foray into the Data Centre space.
The current design of the SEAX Data Centre in BSD Technopark will consist of a dual phase single block data centre, comprising of 4-8 data halls supported with a minimum total power load of 30 MVA.

With seamless wholesale connectivity solutions across South East Asia in mind, SEAX strategic move into the Data Centre space was a natural progression for the company which currently builds, owns, and operates submarine and terrestrial cable assets across the region.
Chief Executive Officer of SEAX Global, Mr Louis Teng said, “In line with our efforts at continually transforming and expanding the business beyond connectivity offerings, the SEAX Data Centre is a natural development from our desire to better serve our customers’ needs as a one stop shop ICT solutions provider. With the completion of SEAX very own data center in Jakarta, our customers will be able to enjoy a seamless PoP to PoP infrastructure offering across Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia.”

Mr Teng also explained why Jakarta was chosen for SEAX venture into the Data Centre space, “The digital economy in Indonesia is expected to exceed USD 124 billion by the end of 2025. We have also observed a strong mandate by the Indonesian government to capitalize on digital transformation and specific ICT infrastructure development. We believe that this momentum is fuelled by the increasing adoption of cloud-based services to which data centres play an integral and essential role and serve as an important conduit. Nevertheless, it is our view that the Indonesia data centre market remains underdeveloped and these cloud-based services run the likely risk of being underserved. This presents a gap in the market and a huge opportunity for SEAX in the data centre space given our soon to be commissioned submarine cable landing facilities in Batam, existing fiber assets and connectivity networks in the region.”
The SEAX Jakarta-Tangerang data centre is scheduled to complete its phase 1 construction in 2025 and is expected to integrate both environmentally friendly materials and sustainable features in its building. SEAX is currently in discussions with various potential partners to explore a collaborative build on the data centre.
