AIM TO DELIVER THE LARGEST FACILITY IN SLOUGH
Data center developer and operator Yondr Group, has just confirmed plans to develop a data center campus in Slough which will have a total capacity of 100MW upon full build.
Aimed at developing the largest single campus capacity in Slough, a major data center hub located at the outskirt of London, the company plans to deliver up to 30MW of IT capacity on the initial phase of the development.
“The M4 Corridor connects London to the heart of Britain and is home to some of the world’s leading organisations. Being located in Slough will allow us to serve our clients in the most sought after metro in the United Kingdom. We are excited to bolster our growing global presence with the addition of Slough, while continuing to transform the data center industry,” said Paul Hood, Managing Director of Operations, EMEA at Yondr Group.
As an extension of its development project in the UK, Yondr has also made several biodiversity and community development commitments, which include working with the wildlife Trust and supporting STEM UK Learning’s ENTHUSE programme by partnering with local schools.
The announcement of the Slough data center project follows Yondr’s formation of a $1 Billion (USD) joint venture partnership with Everstone Group to develop and operate data centers in India, including but not restricted to the metros of Mumbai Metropolitan Region, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai and National Capital Region (Delhi).
Yondr is also expanding its portfolio in the Americas as it recently announced a $2 billion investment to expand its operations across the United States, Canada, Central and South America. This was followed by the acquisition of 270 acres of land in Loudoun and Prince William Counties, Northern Virginia – where the company plans to develop data centers which are expected to support the delivery of 500MW of critical IT capacity when fully built out.
