Hyperscale data centres operator Yondr Group has released its expansion plan to deliver data centre infrastructures across the United States, Canada, Central and South America.
The US$2 billion investment in data centre projects will add to Yondr Group’s existing network of global data centres and underscores the growing momentum to meet cloud and edge computing demands in the Americas.
Yondr Group has appointed Éanna Murphy as senior vice president of operations for the Americas. Murphy will lead the investment, development and management of digital infrastructure assets across the Americas, ensuring the delivery of solutions that enable the most innovative clients to flourish without constraints.
Prior to joining Yondr Group, Murphy, a leading authority on data center development, was a key member of the Google Data Center Delivery and Execution Leadership Team, where he oversaw the buildout of some of the world’s largest data centres.
Dave Newitt, CEO and founder of Yondr Group, said: “The Americas represent a significant opportunity for Yondr Group. Already, the USA’s data centre capacity alone is more than twice that of Europe. And it’s continuing to grow, with a predicted 11GW of capacity in place by 2025.
“With Éanna’s market leadership and Yondr Group’s unrivalled ability to build cost-effective, secure and scalable data centres, faster than anyone else, we’re bringing greater flexibility and sustainability to our clients in the Americas.”
A Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) report found that the data centre construction pipeline reached near-record levels in 2020, with over 611.3MW under construction in the United States.
As part of its Americas expansion plans, Yondr Group said it is additionally committed to make a concerted effort to address the shrinking talent pool that exists in the data centre industry by widening the recruitment net through cross-skilling.
It added that this approach will allow Yondr Group to equip the new generation of data centre talent with the right skillset to meet the growing requirements of operating and maintaining massive digital infrastructures.
