UEM Sunrise and Logos to build world-class data center campus in Johor

UEM Sunrise Berhad has inked a Memorandum of Understanding with LOGOS Infrastructure Holdco Pte Ltd to exclusively explore the opportunity in developing a best-in-class and innovative data center campus in Gerbang Nusajaya, Johor.

The closed signing ceremony held in Singapore witnessed by key representatives from Malaysian Investment and Development Authority (“MIDA”), signifies the beginning of a promising partnership that is set to elevate digital and high-technology industries in the state, leveraging Iskandar Malaysia’s exceptional geographic advantage.

The signing of the MoU follows a meeting between UEM Sunrise, LOGOS and YB Senator Tengku Datuk Seri Utama Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz, Minister of Investment, Trade & Industry of Trade and Industry (“MITI”) in Melbourne, Australia in March 2024. The proposal to establish the data center campus received full support from both MITI and MIDA, as it supports the objectives of Government’s Madani Economic Framework, particularly the New Industrial Master Plan 2030 (NIMP) which focuses on creating a skilled workforce and advancing the digital economy sector.

The proposed data center campus development will be strategically located on a 30-hectare site in Gerbang Nusajaya, Johor, and is planned to offer a development potential of up to 360 MW of capacity. UEM Sunrise is committed to working with LOGOS in exploring collaboration in areas including end-to-end construction management, technical work, and assisting in Government-related process such as licensing applications and securing state approvals.

UEM Sunrise Chief Executive Officer Sufian Abdullah said, “We are capitalising on our vast landbank in Iskandar Malaysia, and actively seek synergies and opportunities to develop our Industrial segment. We are committed in establishing the proposed data center campus together with LOGOS, and confident of its role as a catalyst to Johor’s economic growth.”

LOGOS Head of Data Centres Paul Dwyer said, “Johor Bahru’s strategic location near Singapore, coupled with Malaysia’s robust digital infrastructure plans and strong government support, makes it a prime hub for the burgeoning data center sector in Southeast Asia. This growth is exciting, and we look forward to working in partnership alongside UEM Sunrise and being a key player in this dynamic market.”
