EdgeConneX is coming in hot with another news announcement for the week. This time, the company has announced the successful execution of a landmark $403.8 million deal in Sustainability-Linked Senior Facilities, accelerating the company’s expansion plans and green initiatives for its Jakarta, Indonesia data center footprint.
Why is this important for Jakarta? With extensive fiber, power density, low-latency interconnectivity, and global peering options, Jakarta is a high-growth market with significant opportunities for cloud giants to accelerate their cloud access, content delivery, and connectivity services. EdgeConneX Indonesian hyperscale campus will have the capacity to support over 120MWs.
In addition, the company unveiled the planned expansions of its Jakarta data center campus in a ribbon-cutting ceremony, welcoming honored guests, including Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment, Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan. Other dignitaries involved in the ceremonies included regional officials and local community leaders, along with EdgeConneX Co-founder and CEO Randy Brouckman and Managing Director for APAC Kelvin Fong.
“Indonesia has a forward-looking agenda in the areas of industrialization, decarbonization, affordable and high-quality education, economic equity, digitalization, and infrastructure. Therefore, state-of-the-art facilities like those developed by EdgeConneX are crucial in attracting and fostering connectivity, cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI), and other critical IT applications from leading companies. By continually promoting an ecosystem of cutting-edge technology, Indonesia’s economy will continue to grow rapidly. Importantly, this progress will be achieved with a strong commitment to sustainability, ensuring a greener and more resilient future.” – Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan, Coordinating Minister of Maritime Affairs and Investment of Indonesia
“We are extremely grateful to our customers who are driving the demand for the significant data center capacity expansions necessary to support the digital economy of Indonesia. We are also grateful for our local partners’ support in Jakarta. We couldn’t execute our vision to become Indonesia’s premier data center operator without their capabilities, local relationships, and market expertise that they bring.” – Randy Brouckman, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of EdgeConneX
