Tiltak to establish data centre in Tobago

InvesTT is pleased to announce the establishment of the Tobago Data Centre at the Cove Eco Industrial and Business Park.

Tiltak B.V., a trading and distribution company for a wide variety of brands and products headquartered in the Netherlands, will begin an initial pilot centre during Quarter 1, 2023 having executed a lease agreement with the Eco-Industrial Development Company of Tobago (E-IDCOT) for a period of seven years.

Sekou Alleyne, president InvesTT, notes “The Tobago Data Centre Limited (TDCL) is a TT$2M investment by Tiltak within the ICT-enabled services industry and represents another step in the right direction of national economic growth and diversification. We are happy to have collaborated with E-IDCOT and other public/private agencies on this initiative.”

Why Trinidad and Tobago?

After considerable market research, Tiltak selected Trinidad and Tobago mainly due to the advantages of this country’s location below the hurricane belt which they envision will give their clients some reassurance of the continuous safety of their data. TDCL is set to offer the type of data security and connectivity levels required by companies operating in a post-pandemic era and will specialize in colocation, internet connections, managed hosting and outsourcing for corporate internet. Additionally, the data centre will be ISO 27001 and NEN 7510 Certified and will implement the “A sharp (green) power rate” which will allow organizations to be environmentally conscious.
