Authority of the Freeport Area of Bataan (AFAB) Administrator Mohammed Hussein P. Pangandaman joined a meeting on the potential conversion of the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant (BNPP) into a state-of-the-art data center.
Bataan 2nd District Rep. Abet Garcia discussed land status, progress reports, and insights on the proposed conversion plan of the mothballed facility, according to AFAB report. The project holds the promise of not only stimulating economic growth but also positioning the region as a key player in the digital infrastructure landscape, report said. AFAB Board Director Michael Ballesteros joined Pangandaman in the meeting.
Earlier, Gov. Joet Garcia said the BNPP can be converted into one of the biggest cloud computing data center facility in the world. BNPP is a strong structure and equipped with a water-cooling facility which is suited for a data center. Garcia said in the USA, military barracks are used as data centers being safe and secured.
