On the topic of the new facility, Vertiv CEO Giordano (Gio) Albertazzi, said, “With increasing global digitalization and the rapid adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI), the data center industry is experiencing growth and a demand for more capacity, including for data center thermal and power infrastructure. India’s emergence as a data center hub in the APAC region is a key reason that we built this third manufacturing facility in India, and it reinforces our commitment to nurturing the country’s data center ecosystem while also addressing global demand.” 

According to a JLL report, India’s data center industry is poised for a robust 678 MW expansion in the next three years, elevating its capacity to 1400 MW by 2025, establishing the nation as the 13th largest market globally.
