Yondr Group, a global leader, developer, owner operator and service provider of hyperscale data centres, has energised the initial power at its first data centre in Loudoun County, Northern Virginia.
Having broken ground, in partnership with JK Land Holdings, the two-building campus is set to deliver 96MW of critical IT capacity, with scope for further expansion opportunities.
Home to some of the world’s largest cloud providers, Northern Virginia is a central data centre corridor for Yondr and cements its commitment to investing $2 billion in data centre infrastructure across the US, Canada, Central and South America. With a global scaling strategy focused on delivering cost-efficient, secure and scalable data centres with sustainability at their heart, Yondr’s Northern Virginia campus is one of several data centres in development, with other locations comprising the UK, Germany, Malaysia and India.
Eanna Murphy, COO of Global Design and Construction at Yondr Group, said: “Demand for data centres is growing exponentially, and energising the initial power at our first data centre campus in Northern Virginia is testament to our expert Yondr-ites within our Utilities, Development, Design & Construction and Operations teams. Possessing such a breadth of skillsets under one roof is a real niche within our market, enabling us to serve our clients’ growing cloud capacity needs.”
Paul Dillon, Chief Development Officer at Yondr Group, adds: “Northern Virginia is the most desirable data centre location in the world and today’s announcement marks a major milestone in delivering our inaugural data centre in the home of data. We look forward to being good partner to the local community”.
