The ChinData subsidiary said the project will offer 87MW across three phases, with the first two phases involving the construction of a three-story data center.

Eric Fan, president of Bridge Data Centres, said: “Our ongoing expansion in Malaysia underscores our commitment to meeting the evolving needs of our customers and further solidifying our position as a key player in the data center industry.

"With this latest development in Cyberjaya, we are poised to continue driving innovation and supporting the digital transformation of businesses across the nation.”

Cyberview is a state-owned entity under the Ministry of Finance tasked with developing Cyberjaya into a technology hub. Vantage and EdgeConneX are also developing Cyberjaya campuses in partnership with Cyberview.

Cyberview CEO, Kamarul Ariffin Abdul Samad, said: “Bridge Data Centre’s investment in Cyberjaya, represents a significant achievement and validates the city’s positioning as the prime location for hyperscale data center providers. This is a testament to our commitment to fostering innovation, in line with the government's aspiration to continue to grow the digital economy.”

Bridge acquired two data centers in Cyberjaya in 2018. At the time they were renamed MY01 and MY02. The two sites total approximately one million sq ft of space and 20MW of critical IT load.

The company launched a data center outside Johor in 2022 and announced plans for a 48MW expansion to its MY03 site in Kuala Lumpur last year.

The company also has a facility in Thailand and is aiming to develop a 20MW data center in Navi Mumbai, India.

Bain bought ChinData in 2019 from Wangsu Science & Technology Co. and merged it with its portfolio firm Bridge Data Centres. The combined company went public in 2020 before Bain took the company private again last year.
