Savills facilitates land deal for Web Werks


International property consultant Savills India has facilitated a land transaction deal for data centre provider Web Werks, in Navi Mumbai.

Located at Thane-Belapur Road, Web Werks has bought close to an acre of land to build a 12.5 megawatts (MW) data centre with an estimated investment of Rs 400 crore.

The acquisition came close on the heels of Web Werks entering into a joint venture partnership with Iron Mountain, a storage and information management services company. As part of the agreement, the Boston-headquartered firm expects to invest $150 million in the next two years.

India holds immense potential to become a data centre hub owing to the availability of significant bandwidth speed, lower power tariffs and presence of hyper scalers. Additionally, the availability of state-of-the-art infrastructure, such as the one Web Werks intends to create is likely to fuel the growth of India’s data centre market.”
