As further announced, BDx Indonesia will modernize and expand the four operating facilities and develop new greenfield projects to enhance capacity to 70MW by 2023 and 250MW in the next five years. In addition, customers in Indonesia are expected to gain access to connectivity options across the entire BDx cluster including facilities in China, Hong Kong and Singapore.
