The Rosenergoatom Joint-Stock Company is to build a Data Center in Tatarstan that will form the digital infrastructure of Innopolis

On May 23, 2019, during the ‘Digital industry in Russia’ conference, a trilateral Memorandum on cooperation between the Rosenergoatom Joint-Stock Company (a part of the Electric power division of Rosatom), the Innopolis Special Economic Zone and the IT Park Autonomous Public Institution was signed.

The memorandum stipulates the major directions and tenants of cooperation when implementing data center construction projects for major public and private customers in the Republic of Tatarstan in the innovative city of the future – Innopolis*.

According to the document, the Rosenergoatom Joint-Stock Company, which boasts experience in launching the ‘Mendeleev’ project aimed at building highly secure data centers in Russia, offers to scale its expertise and hands-on skills in data construction and setting up the operations of NPP data centers across the Republic of Tatarstan.

The Innopolis Special Economic Zone, on the other hand, is willing to provide the spaces, the necessary engineering infrastructure and qualified staff to launch this project. The IT Park will also be involved in this project as it acts as a great example in managing the Republic’s IT infrastructure and operating an existing data center.

The parties have agreed to finalize all technical, managerial, and financial aspects of the project and start designing the new data center for the Republic of Tatarstan under the supervision of Rosatom within 2019.
