The details of ALP’s ME&A data centre expansion plan
ALP is a leading developer of industrial and logistics real estate, with an extensive network spanning the Middle East, Africa and South Asia.
Now, the developer has announced the launch of a series of new tailored, data centre campus sites, representing state-of-the-art warehousing complexes, readied to host data centres.
These new sites will be located in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Egypt and Ghana - and there are still more yet to come.
The first set of campuses is in ALP parks in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia), Kuwait, Cairo (Egypt) and Accra-Tema (Ghana). ALP also expects to add sites in other rapidly growing data centre markets, including Nairobi, Casablanca, Lagos and more.
The sites are being readied at ultra-modern ALP warehousing complexes in fast-growing markets and mega-cities, strategically chosen for their intentions to add hyperscale data centre capacity and resolve data latency, security and compliance challenges. As a result, these investments will prove critical in speeding their growth and improving competitiveness.
“ALP is uniquely poised with a portfolio of ideal sites across the Middle East and Africa. We have a strong track record of development in challenging markets, a healthy balance sheet, and the in-house engineering capability to meet the technical specifications of hyperscale data centre operators,” commented Ronald Philip, Senior Director at ALP.
“Based on feedback from several data centre operators, we believe we can support them and accelerate their deployment through our data centre campuses.”
“We have strong feedback from our global clients that Agility’s value proposition in challenging emerging markets will help them with faster speed to market with a credible, institutional developer as a partner,” added Stephen Beard, Global Head of Data Centres at Knight Frank.
