For gasification, LNG contains significant embedded energy. also known as “Cold energy”, which is an unused resource. But it can be used to generate electricity and cooling in the STT GDC environment, a collaboration between PTT Digital and PTT Group which will help facilitate the use of this cold energy as an alternative energy source in the data in the Center instead of letting it go to waste This will be the first of its kind in Thailand and will set a new standard for reducing carbon emissions for the data center industry.
Mr. Kaweesak Boonchaew Managing Director PTT Digital said he has continued the PTT Group’s vision to transform the business into Future Energy And Beyond by leveraging untapped energy and digital innovation. Collaboration with STT GDC will help support that vision as the company pursues it. Aiming to build a sustainable data center industry together
