Web Werks, an Indian company, plans to build a 12.5MW data center in Navi Mumbai. The company claims to have invested Rs 400 crore ($55 million) on a land parcel adjacent to its current facility in order to construct a stand-alone purpose-built greenfield data center. Savills India facilitated the transaction.

The new 100,000 square foot (9,300 square meter) structure will be an Uptime Tier III center, according to the firm, and will be ready for operation by mid-2022.
“Our existing data centers in Mumbai is at 80% capacity, and we are seeing increased demand for our services from OTTs and Enterprises,” said Nikhil Rathi, CEO of Web Werks India. “Even our current customers’ needs are increasing, and with this new data center, we’ll be able to satisfy them, as well as hyperscale demand that requires a connectivity-rich ecosystem.”
It already has data centers in Navi Mumbai, Pune, and Delhi NCR. The new facility will be the company’s fourth in India.
Web Werks and Iron Mountain formed a joint venture last month, in which the US data center corporation will spend $150 million over the next two years. Web Werks hopes to grow its operations in its three existing markets and then expand into Bangalore, Hyderabad, and Chennai as a result of the transaction.
