The complexity of constructing next-generation data centres is growing, driven by the exponential demand for computing power due to advanced technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning. Amid increasing cyber threats, companies, especially in the financial technology sector, are prioritizing robust security measures. Simultaneously, environmental concerns and regulatory compliance are shaping data centre strategies.
Singapore faces a significant challenge, with less than 4 Megawatts of available capacity and a record-low vacancy rate of less than 2%, making it the world’s most power-constrained data centre market. This has led to a surge in demand for reliable data centre solutions, spurring companies like CHINT to innovate.
CHINT showcased its advanced data centre solutions, including the EnergiX-P40 Power Distribution Unit (PDU), at the Data Centre World Asia 2023 event. The EnergiX-P40, certified under rigorous standards, offers up to 144 outgoing circuits and enables circuit breaker replacement without downtime. Moreover, CHINT’s prefabricated substations, featuring lithium battery systems, provide essential backup power and reduce on-site customization needs, minimizing waste.
Er. Lim Say Leong, Technical Director of Asia Pacific at CHINT Global and Sunlight Electrical, emphasized the critical nature of data centre construction, highlighting the importance of planning, expertise, and innovative solutions. He discussed strategies for optimizing data centre design, selecting cost-effective high-quality materials, and employing prefabricated substations to enhance construction speed and cost efficiency.
CHINT also explored the potential of hydrogen and renewables in transforming the energy sector at the event. Benjamin Kho, Regional Applications Marketing Manager of Asia Pacific at CHINT Global, discussed this topic, fostering enthusiasm for a shift towards a low-carbon world.
Furthermore, CHINT hosted the 10th CHINT International Marketing Forum (CIMF) in Shanghai, analyzing smart energy trends and the company’s carbon-neutral journey. Industry experts, including Nan Cunhui (Chairman of CHINT Group) and Lily Zhang (President of CHINT Global), discussed strategies to empower an energy-efficient future.
As CHINT expands its presence in the APAC region, the company aims to collaborate with individuals, businesses, and governments to develop innovative smart energy solutions and meet evolving demands in the smart energy sector.
