Asia-Pacific industrial infrastructure development firm LOGOS and Pure Data Centres (Pure DC) have entered into a partnership aimed at developing data centre infrastructure across Asia Pacific.

Pure DC’s Chief Executive, Martin Lynch, said: “We are delighted to expand our already successful relationship with LOGOS, who share our desire to be at the forefront of innovation and sustainability. 

“This partnership will enable us to deliver the large-scale sustainable data centres customers demand, across the ten geographies where LOGOS operates and holds assets. Combining this asset base with our excellent technical and operational know-how provides a greatly simplified and repeatable delivery solution for the world’s leading technology companies as they seek to expand in multiple geographies across the region.”

The deal will see LOGOS use its logistics platform and reach across APAC whilst Pure DC will contribute with its hyperscale design and operational capabilities.

Both LOGOS and Pure DC said they share a common vision for sustainability and aim to incorporate sustainability objectives into design and operation. 

The partnership is committed to delivering carbon neutral facilities, using renewable power and minimising water usage on all their projects.

The companies expect that projects developed under this arrangement will help facilitate the rollout of new large-scale renewable power infrastructure in underserved markets.

LOGOS’ Head of Infrastructure, Frederic Devos said: “There is an acute undersupply of mission-critical data centre infrastructure in Asia-Pacific and we are pleased to partner with Pure DC to increase the availability of these essential assets.”

Also commenting, LOGOS Managing Director and CEO, Trent Iliffe added: “Our existing partnership with Pure DC has evolved to accommodate LOGOS new approach to developing and investing into fully fitted out data centres. The combination of LOGOS’s real estate portfolio and in-country development resources with Pure DC’s technical and operational expertise allows us to meet any customer need.”

LOGOS is today present in ten operating markets across APAC including Australia, China, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, India, Korea and New Zealand.

Its shareholders include ARA Asset Management, the largest Asia Pacific real assets manager with US$95 billion in gross assets under management globally; Ivanhoé Cambridge, a Canadian real estate industry leader investing in in high-quality properties and companies with C$60.4 billion in real estate assets globally; and LOGOS’ founders.

The latest partnership with Pure DC follows on from a summer announcement that saw the two parties get together to develop a 20,000 square meter, 20-megawatt data centre in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The building is currently under construction and will be ready for operation in Q1 2022 under the published schedule.
