Keen to expand data centre presence, Yondr Group breaks ground on a new site in Virginia, US, to continue focusing on sustainability and customer demand

The demand for hyperscale data centres is only continuing to rise.

With this in mind, leading hyperscale data centre operator and service provider, Yondr Group, continues to deliver services worldwide - having broken ground on its second 48MW data centre in Loudoun County, Northern Virginia. The two-building campus is expected to deliver critical cloud capacity in one of the world’s largest data centre markets.

As a result of more businesses adopting hybrid-working patterns and the widespread development of AI and cloud-based services, it is anticipated that customer demand will only continue to put pressures on the data centre industry.

A pathway towards Net Zero data centres

Yondr Group works to deliver complex data centre capacity needs for the world’s largest technology companies. Within global data centre operations, the company aims to bring stability, clarity and confidence as it delivers capacity to meet the scalability requirements of its clients moving forward.

Commencing construction of this new data centre in Virginia marks a pivotal phase of the company’s operations. Yondr Group has stated that it aims to create numerous socio-economic benefits in Loudoun County, which include job creation, talent development and a long-term social value legacy.

The data centre also has a waterless design that is shaped by Yondr’s multidisciplinary in-house expertise and ensures zero reliance on local water supplies. Sustainability is placed at the centre of this data centre design, further demonstrating the company’s environmentally conscious model.

With sustainability being a crucial focus worldwide on account of the climate crisis, the data centre industry has seen a real shift in focus towards alternative energy sources and increased regulations concerning carbon reporting. In fact, Yondr Group is meeting this head on, having recently unveiled targets to achieve Net Zero by 2030 for both scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions.

“Northern Virginia remains the world’s data centre capital, and we’re delighted to commence this next phase of Loudoun County’s digital infrastructure transformation alongside a partner whose values, morals and ethics mirror our own,” says Eanna Murphy, COO of Design and Construction at Yondr Group.

“Yondr’s prowess in the data centre market is underpinned by our vision to deliver critical IT capacity at pace, prioritise quality, innovation and sustainability, and spur significant social value throughout our supply chain and the communities within which we operate; with this second phase comprising some one million plus people hours from inception to completion.

“Our commitment to investing US$2bn in future-ready data centre infrastructure in the American region further cements our expansion, as we deliver a legacy of supporting digital resiliency, digital transformation and the continued adoption of AI and other rapid-growth technologies.”

Yondr Group has also committed to the development of hyperscale data centres in Japan via a partnership with Japanese trading and investment business conglomerate, Marubeni Corporation. These data centres will utilise renewable energy and aim to contribute to a more decarbonised society.
