Hyperscale data center solutions provider, Colt Data Center Services (Colt DCS), has just announced the commencement of construction of its fourth data center in Inzai City, Japan.

Codenamed Inzai 4 Data Center, the new site is located 600m from Colt DCS’ existing Inzai Campus, and is planned to feature an IT area of 8,747 square meter and a designed IT capacity of approximately 20MW, bringing the combined IT capacity of the extended Inzai campus to nearly 70MW.

“Colt DCS’ latest expansion within Inzai City is part of our long-term strategy to provide scalable growth for our customers with refined data center design and proven experience. We are trusted by our customers to effectively build their digital infrastructure, as well as manage and operate their data center with their scalability needs in mind,” said Niclas Sanfridsson, CEO of Colt DCS.

“We see this as an exciting opportunity to deepen our digital footprint and increase our IT capacity within the region. Colt DCS’ customer-centricity has always been at the heart of our operations and growth strategy, and we look forward to continuing our ethos with Inzai 4 – the fifth hyperscale data center Colt DCS has built in Japan.”

As announced, Inzai 4 represents the second development under the joint venture between Fidelity Investments and Mitsu, following the grand opening of the first development in Osaka Keihanna, which the company announced in March 2023. Colt DCS was appointed by the joint venture as the exclusive service provider for the design, development, operations and customer service management for the venture.

“The launch of Inzai 4 is testament to the service and operation that Colt DCS offer, and highlights them as a trusted data center operator. We’re delighted that our partnership with Fidelity Investments encompasses the launch of Inzai 4, and we’re excited to see how this new hyperscale data center can help to further serve the data center needs of businesses worldwide,” said Takashi Nakai, General Manager of the Financial Business Division of Mitsui & Co.

According to Colt DCS, the first phase of the Inzai 4 Data Centre is currently planned to be completed by the end of 2024, and is designed to meet the needs of hyperscale cloud service providers and large enterprises, while expecting to provide employment opportunities for up to  60 people.
