PDG delivers Phase 1 of 150MW AI-ready JH1 Campus in Malaysia

Princeton Digital Group (PDG) has delivered Phase One of its 150-megawatt JH1 data centre campus, located in Sedenak Tech Park (STeP) in Johor, Malaysia. 

Touted as one of the largest data centre campuses in Southeast Asia, JH1 is PDG’s flagship AI-ready facility in Malaysia, serving some of the world’s largest technology companies. 

Delivered in just 12 months, Phase One comprises 52MW of the JH1 campus, represents PDG’s SG+ strategy of enabling customers to seamlessly expand their infrastructure from Singapore to highly scalable data centre campuses located in Batam, and Johor. 

The rooftop of the project will be used for generating renewable energy through the installation of solar panels. In May this year, PDG secured its first 1.276-billion ringgit (about US$280 million) green loan for JH1. 

“Data centres form the cornerstone of the digital ecosystem, facilitating the seamless flow of data, enabling generative AI, and empowering hyperscalers to innovate at unparalleled levels,” said Rangu Salgame, chairman, CEO and Cofounder of PDG. 

“We are highly appreciative of the steadfast support of the Malaysia government, whose proactive policies have played a pivotal role in creating a supportive environment for the industry,” he said.

Asher Ling, PDG CTO and managing director in Singapore expressed the company’s commitment to expanding its presence in Malaysia. 

“Establishing a state-of-the-art green data center campus like this goes beyond economic growth; it’s also about PDG’s commitment to nurturing talent and creating jobs in this rapidly growing industry,” said Ling.
