Keppel Data Centres signs pact with three Chinese technology firms on building better centres

THE data centre arm of government-linked conglomerate Keppel Corp has tied up with three Chinese technology firms to develop more efficient and robust data centres.

Keppel Data Centres Holding's cooperation agreement with tech giant Huawei, data centre equipment maker Xiangjiang Science & Technology, and data centre operator Cloud Engine (Beijing) Network Technology will see the partners working together to develop, operate and maintain high-availability data centres in China and elsewhere, according to an announcement on Thursday.

Wong Wai Meng, chief executive of Keppel Data Centres, said in a media statement that the firm "is pleased to support the data centre growth requirements of international as well as local Chinese enterprises with this strategic collaboration".

Keppel Data Centres, a joint venture between Keppel Corp's wholly owned Keppel Land and the mainboard-listed Keppel Telecommunications & Transportation Ltd (Keppel T&T) subsidiary, previously signed a green data centre technology development pact with Huawei in 2017.

Keppel T&T closed flat at S$1.85 before the announcement.
