Adani Enterprises company AdaniConneX is developing an Integrated Data Center and Technology Business Park in Madhurawada, Vizag. It is the step taken to boost the local technology ecosystem in Vizag.
The groundbreaking ceremony at the park site in Madhurawada, Vizag was held on Wednesday in the presence of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, Adani Group managing director Rajesh Adani, and Adani Ports & SEZ CEO Karan Adani.
The facility will have a data center, technology, and business park, and skill development center, says the company.
According to the press statement issued by the company, the investments will be on top of the Rs 20,000 crore already invested in the state, which created more than 18,000 direct and 54,000 indirect jobs.
The park will host a 200+ MW of data center capacity, powered with up to 100 percent renewable energy.
Gautam Adani, Chairman, of Adani Group said “Our world is being defined by our ability to generate, store, access and move data. With the advancements in AI, high-definition content and massive digitization, the need for compute and storage is increasing exponentially. Andhra Pradesh, with its geographical advantages of land for renewable energy and a long coastline, is well positioned to host data center parks not only for our country but also for those nations that are short of land or energy. What the Adani Group brings through our ports, data centers and green energy capabilities is a uniquely powerful combination of unmatched strategic adjacencies within the data center world.”
