LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va., — December 18, 2023 – Yondr Group, a global leader, developer, owner-operator, and service provider of hyperscale data centers, has energized the initial power at its first data center in Loudoun County, Northern Virginia.

Home to some of the world’s largest cloud providers, Northern Virginia is a central data center corridor for Yondr and cements its commitment to investing $2 billion in data center infrastructure across the US, Canada, Central and South America. With a global scaling strategy focused on delivering cost-efficient, secure, and scalable data centers with sustainability at their heart, Yondr’s Northern Virginia campus is one of several data centers in development, with other locations comprising the UK, Germany, Malaysia, and India.
Eanna Murphy, COO of Global Design and Construction at Yondr Group, said: “Demand for data centers is growing exponentially, and energizing the initial power at our first data center campus in Northern Virginia is a testament to our expert Yondr-ites within our Utilities, Development, Design & Construction, and Operations teams.
