Nangong Road datacenter construction update
Microsoft and its general contractor CTCI are building a datacenter on Nangong Road in Luzhu District, Taoyuan City, Taiwan. Construction of the building started early 2022 and is estimated to be complete in 2024. Completion of construction does not indicate datacenter operation/availability.
Why datacenters are needed
Datacenters provide the physical infrastructure for the technology we depend on at work and in our personal lives. Whenever you open an app on your phone, join a virtual classroom or meeting, snap and save photos, or play a game with your friends online, you are using a datacenter. Local businesses, government, hospitals, and schools rely on datacenters every day to deliver goods and services to you.
The general contractor CTCI is permitted for this work and has built a construction fence surrounding the construction site as a safety precaution.
Excavation work at the datacenter site is expected to continue through the end of Q2 2023. CTCI is using dust covers and water trucks to minimize dust caused by the excavation. Truck wash stations are also available on-site to ensure dust is not brought onto public roads.
When the cable connection work begins later this year, CTCI will be working with a contractor assigned by TaiPower and Taoyuan City to ensure the work is completed safely and properly.
