Bridge Data Centers signs electricity supply agreement with TNB For its data center in Johor

KUALA LUMPUR: Bridge Data Centres International Pte Ltd (BDC) has reinforced its collaboration with Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) through the signing of the Electricity Supply Agreement (ESA) for its forthcoming data centre venture in Malaysia.

The ESA, which was executed on March 7, 2024, signifies TNB's commitment to furnish additional power resources to facilitate BDC's expansion plans for its data centre presence in Johor.

BDC's alliance with TNB commenced in 2022, when it initially received 275 kV of utility power from TNB to support its inaugural hyperscale data centre endeavor.

Two years later BDC is in the process of developing another data centre campus, emphasising lower Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) standards within the region.

Construction of the facility is progressing according to schedule, with the first phase of the core and shell building nearing completion, it said in a statement.

BDC, a key player in the Asia Pacific data centre market, said it anticipates achieving the Certificate of Completion and Compliance (CCC), a mandatory statutory requirement, in the earliest phases soon.

The company's president Eric Fan said throughout its journey to advance digital connectivity and the digital economy of the country, TNB and various Malaysian government agencies at both the state and federal levels have provided unwavering support to BDC. 

"We are grateful for this support and confident that our partnership will continue to grow stronger in the years ahead," he said.

BDC is a subsidiary of Chindata Group, which in turn is a carrier-neutral hyperscale data centre solution provider in global emerging markets.
