STACK Infrastructure has entered into a partnership with funds managed by Oaktree Capital Management, L.P. to develop a 36MW data centre campus in Inzai, Japan, as the US operator ramps up its overseas expansion plans.

The project will break ground in 2Q 2022 with capacity expected to be delivered in 4Q 2023.

STACK’s new Inzai campus will include two buildings totalling 36MW of capacity equally split between the facilities at 18MW.

The new development will provide scalability and redundancy by connecting to regional substations powered by Tokyo Electric Power Company.

The campus, with options for potential campus expansion, will offer hyperscale and enterprise clients a facility that is designed to enable higher rack density and floor loading specifications, reflecting the evolving requirements in Inzai and the APAC region more broadly.

Pithambar (Preet) Gona, STACK’s Chief Executive Officer – APAC, said: “STACK’s expansion into Japan exemplifies our focus on establishing a scalable presence in markets that are strategically important to our clients.

“The decision to enter Japan, a critical location for hyperscale customers, demonstrates STACK’s ability to leverage our partnership model, capital, expertise and ability to attract leading talent in the industry to the STACK platform.”

Hideya Takahashi, Senior Vice President of Oaktree, added: “We are excited to partner with STACK to accelerate their international expansion in this critical region.

“STACK’s industry-leading innovative technical solutions paired with Oaktree’s experience in providing ideal locations and infrastructure in the region, will result in a 36MW campus that is looking to exceed the highest level of expectations from clients.”

STACK has recently announced plans to enter Singapore, South Korea, Australia, and other Asia Pacific markets after Japan.

The operator is also expanding in several other locations across the US, including the upcoming commissioning of a 24MW facility in Portland and the recently announced 216MW campus in Ashburn, VA, in direct response to hyperscale client demands.
