EDGNEX Data Centres By DAMAC Announces A 15 MW Data Centre Investment In Indonesia

EDGNEX Data Centres by DAMAC, a global digital infrastructure provider owned by the DAMAC Group, has announced investments into the Indonesian market with a state-of-the-art data centre to be built in Jakarta. With the first phase scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of 2025, the announcement is a significant step in the company’s strategic efforts to support digital economies and the vibrant start-up ecosystem in Southeast Asia’s (SEA) fastest-growing economies.

EDGNEX is providing a foundation for innovation and disrupting the data centre market by providing advanced technology to cater to increased demand from Cloud Service Providers (CSP) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) deployments.

Indonesia, Southeast Asia›s largest economy, expanded by 5% year-on-year from January through March 2023. Jakarta is on track to boost its data centre capacity to 1GW. To support this growth, more colocation data centres that adhere to sustainable Tier III standards, offering high uptime and reliability essential for meeting the rising demands of internet usage in the region, are needed.

Hussain Sajwani, Founder and Chairman of the DAMAC Group, commented: “EDGNEX identifies and invests in present and next-generation digital hubs. The government’s robust digitalisation efforts, high internet penetration and a tech-savvy, youthful demographic, necessitate advanced infrastructure to support the burgeoning digital economy. With this announcement we are pleased to support the government’s efforts and to bring our expertise in setting new standards for data centres in Southeast Asia, catalysing further technological innovation and growth across the region.”

The new facility is strategically located on MT Haryono in Jakarta. It is 3 kilometres from one of the most interconnected data centre clusters—an essential internet exchange point within Jakarta’s central data hub. It will have dual road access and exceptional fibre connectivity, ensuring enhanced service reliability and superior performance to meet evolving customer demands.

Danish Nayar, SVP of Investments and Acquisitions, DAMAC Capital, added: “We are excited by the growth opportunities in Jakarta. Our new facility in downtown Jakarta will address the growing demand for Cloud Service Providers, Edge Nodes, and potential Artificial Intelligence deployments. We are also investing in a similar format across SEA and globally.
