MAKES ITS ENTRY INTO THE MALAYSIAN MARKET
Data center developer and service provider, Yondr Group, has today announced it plans to develop a 200MW hyperscale campus in Johor, Malaysia.
For this project, Yondr Group has already acquired 72.8 acres of land from TPM Technopark Sdn Bhd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Johor Corporation. The land is precisely located in Sedenak Tech Park, a 700 acre data center complex in Johor, Malaysia.
“Malaysia is a significant part of our expansion plans within Southeast Asia. Our ability to secure this critical location in Sedenak Tech Park, complements our existing presence in Jakarta, Indonesia and further bolsters our strategic presence in this high growth market,” said Dave Newitt, Chief Executive Officer at Yondr Group.
“The state of Johor in Malaysia is in close proximity to other key data center metros, including Singapore which offers valuable interconnectivity routes, representing a true benefit for our clients especially in combination with the scalability in meeting requirements of power and land.”
Since Sedenak Tech Park is home to some data and cloud players within the Southeast Asia region, Yondr’s new campus will have access to at least 600MW of power capacity, dark fiber connectivity, and other existing utilities and infrastructure.
“We value Yondr’s strategic decision to invest in Sedenak Tech Park, as a testament of their confidence in our location and offerings as a world-class data hub for the region. We are delighted to welcome Yondr with their full-scale data center technical expertise and operational capabilities to Johor, Malaysia,” said Akmal Ahmad, Director of Johor Corporation’s Real Estate and Infrastructure Division and Chairman of TPM Technopark.
According to Yondr, the new 200MW hyperscale data center campus will be developed across multiple phases with the first phase scheduled for delivery in 2024.
The company is also expanding its footprint across other major markets across the globe such as in Frankfurt, Germany, where Yondr recently announced that it plans to develop a 40MW data center facility.
