2022-10-21

Johor, 20 October 2022 - Chindata Group (NASDAQ: CD), a leading data center provider across Malaysia, India and Thailand, celebrate a significant milestone today with the grand opening of Bridge Data Centres(BDC)'s first phase hyperscale data center (MY06) in Sedenak, Johor. Phase 1 covers the first of the three buildings in the 110MW hyperscale data center project which spans across 38 acres of land area. Leveraging on innovative construction and design methodologies, the construction of the data center was completed in a record time in local Malaysia of approximately 2,200,000 working hours (314 days) since breaking ground in November 2021. The project received full support and facilitation from the Malaysian federal and state governments, including the Digital Investment Office (DIO), a fully-digital collaborative platform between the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) and the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC).

 

The grand opening was attended by the Chief Minister of Johor and other dignitaries to mark the success of Malaysia as a competitive nation in attracting data center investment. It also aligns with the country's aim to attract RM70 billion of investments in digitalisation under the MyDIGITAL initiative.


Also present to witness the event was Datuk Wira Arham Abdul Rahman, Chief Executive Officer of MIDA, who expressed, "We are excited and honoured to have been chosen by Bridge Data Centres as their choice of location for the establishment of this hyperscale data center venture. MIDA through Digital Investment Office (DIO) and Project Acceleration and Coordination Unit (PACU) have been very supportive of this project since its pre-investment stage right up to the implementation phase. I remember chairing several meetings to facilitate this project with various stakeholders including electricity requirements from TB, land matters, as well as water requirements."

 

"Today's event demonstrates that Malaysia is still the most desirable location in the region for data center hubs. Supported by the country's vast resources, favourable environment and advancement in digital infrastructure, Malaysia has developed into a mature market for data centers. This illustrates the country's readiness to serve as a regional data center hub," added Datuk Wira Arham.


BDC is also the first company with Malaysia Digital status to complete the construction and handover the business-ready hyperscale data center in 2022.

 

"On behalf of MDEC, I would like to congratulate BDC on the opening of Phase 1 of the hyperscale data center. This facility will increase not only latency and efficiency, but also will help attract other global businesses and investments into the country. It adds to the momentum that we have built with the launch of Malaysia Digital, a new national strategic initiative, which seeks to catalyse the growth of our digital economy," said Ts. Mahadhir Aziz, CEO of MDEC.

 

With the rapid growth of the cloud service providers and digital media, BDC has the full support from the US-based Bain Capital to expand its hyperscale data center business in the Southeast Asia region. The company will be building another 100 MW of data center capacity in the next five years across Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.

 

"I would like to express my gratitude to the Digital Investment Office (DIO), Invest Johor, and Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) for their tremendous assistance and support for this project. We look forward to a long-term partnership with the Malaysian government as we expand our business in Malaysia to support our clients," said Mr. Lim DZ Shing, President of Bridge Data Centres.
