CTEX’s ‘CU-1’ is the first of four 5,200 square meter (52,000 square feet) super high-density data centers to be built in Curaçao on top of a mountain terrace 60 meters above sea level. Through local and international partners, such as Schneider Electric and CISCO, the company has officially started construction of the Tier-IV design, LEED certified data center.
