Yondr Group Powers Up in Malaysia with New Data Centre

Committing to advancing digital transformation and sustainability efforts, Yondr Group announces new Malaysia data centre to expand operations across APAC

Yondr Group has energised its first data centre campus in Malaysia, marking a significant milestone in delivering power infrastructure.

The leading global developer, owner and operator of hyperscale data centres has achieved this within two years of market entry, with the campus set to deliver 300MW of critical IT capacity when complete.

It will see the development of multiple phases, with access to dark fibre connectivity, scalable utilities, and infrastructure. With some of the largest data and cloud sector players in Southeast Asia, the region forms a key part of Yondr Group’s Asia-Pacific (APAC) expansion strategy. 

Strategic digital transformation

First entering the Malaysian market in 2022, Yondr Group demonstrates its speed and reliability when it comes to hyperscale data centre developments and delivery capabilities.

The announcement follows the company’s strategic partnership with Tenago Nasional Berhad, a multinational Malaysian electricity company. It consists of an Electricity Supply Agreement that enables the delivery of 300MW+ IT load at Yondr’s Johor campus via a 275kV high voltage substation. 

Likewise, the energy supply capacity will effectively make Yondr’s site the largest hyperscale data centre campus in Southeast Asia. Its new data centre development is geographically close to a wide variety of technology-driven developments, including advanced electrical and electronic, medical device manufacturing, green renewable energy, biotechnology and food tech sector businesses, in addition to other research and development facilities.

The state of Johor in Malaysia is geographically close to other key data centre metros, including Singapore, which offers valuable interconnectivity routes. This will ensure that Yondr’s clients in Malaysia benefit from long-term scalability potential, in terms of both power and land requirements.

Yondr Group’s presence in the region also aims to build on the company’s success in gaining a foothold in all major global data centre hubs, with projects currently underway in Northern Virginia (USA), multiple Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam and Paris (FLAP) European locations and a recent strategic partnership with conglomerate Marubeni to establish a presence in Japan.

“Malaysia is a central data centre corridor for Yondr and reflects our commitments for growth in APAC,” says Paul Dillon, Chief Development Officer at Yondr Group. “The Johor development supports our global scaling strategy, which focuses on delivering cost-efficient, secure and scalable data centres, with sustainability at their heart.”

The company has already expanded a commitment to sustainable data centre sites in the US, delivering a new two-building campus in Virginia to upscale operations in a sustainable way.

In fact, the company also recently unveiled targets to achieve Net Zero by 2030 for both scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions, highlighting a desire to be more future-ready.
