BDx Indonesia is breaking new ground once again! The company held an official groundbreaking ceremony on April 11th for its greenfield data center, CGK3A, in TB Simatupang, South Jakarta.
Valued at $150 million in U.S. dollars, the data center will provide 15 MW capacity and is designed to provide global and leading data center services for companies and hyperscalers in Indonesia. BDx Indonesia is a subsidiary of BDx and one of the largest wholesale data center and cloud-focused operations in the Indonesian market.
The development of CGK3A is motivated by the continued growth in Indonesia’s digital economy, which reached a value of $77 billion in US dollars by the end of 2022 and is predicted to grow to $130 billion by 2025. The CGK3A will answer the need for a strong and competent digital infrastructure to facilitate this massive growth. The data center’s addition into BDx data center portfolio in Indonesia is also part of the company’s plan to provide 70 MW data center capacity by the end of 2023.
“As the largest digital economy among ASEAN countries, Indonesia needs a digital infrastructure provider that can keep up with the development of the country’s digital economy,” Agus Hartono Wijaya, President Director and CEO of BDx Indonesia explained. “Today’s CGK3A groundbreaking is a testament of BDx Indonesia’s commitment to offer exceptional connectivity for our customers, both technology enterprises and hyperscalers, and to support the development of Indonesia’s digital transformation.”
In addition to connectivity, the CGK3A data center is 14,127 m2 in size and is also equipped with Tier III data center facilities, as well as advanced security systems, automation technology, and high network uptime. The data center is built to provide operational excellence and a sustainable solution with a below-average power usage effectiveness (PUE) of 1.4 – without compromising its productivity and scalability.
CGK3A is targeted to be fully operational by the end of 2023 and will complement the CGK3 data center and four other data centers built by BDx Indonesia since the company’s inception in June 2022.
