Yondr Group, a, developer, owner operator and service provider of data centres, has announced its entry into the Malaysian market with a planned 200MW hyperscale campus.
The campus is to be developed on 72.8 acres of land acquired from TPM Technopark Sdn Bhd, whose interests include project management services for commercial and industrial developments.
The land is strategically located in Sedenak Tech Park, described as a flagship data centre complex across 700 acres of land in Johor.
The Sedenak Tech park, formerly known as Kulai Iskandar Data Exchange (KIDEX), is nestled in the heart of the larger 7,290 acres of Sedenak Technology Valley, an industrial and technology hub comprised of technology-driven developments such as advanced electrical and electronic, medical device manufacturing, green renewable energy, biotechnology and food tech, among other research and development facilities.
Yondr’s hyperscale campus will be developed across multiple phases and will deliver a total capacity of 200MW when fully completed, with the first phase scheduled for delivery in 2024.
With access to at least 600MW of capacity, dark fibre connectivity, scalable utilities and infrastructure, Sedenak Tech Park is home to some of the largest data and cloud players within the Southeast Asia region.
“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, CEO at Yondr Group. He also pointed out that Johor is close to other key data centre metros, including Singapore.
Within Southeast Asia, Malaysia’s data centre market size is expected to hit a revenue of over US$800 million by 2025. Yondr says that the country is already experiencing increasing investment spill-overs due to inherent land constraints in other surrounding markets.
