Adani Group has formed an exclusive subsidiary to set up a data centre in Mumbai.

On February 4, Adani Connex Pvt Ltd, a 50:50 joint venture between Adani Enterprises and EdgeConnex Europe BV, unveiled a wholly-owned subsidiary Mumbai Data Centre Ltd, the Adani group firm stated in a stock exchange filing.
In the statement it was mentioned that the new unit will”Undertake business to develop, operate, maintain, deal with data centres, information technology (IT)/ information technology-enabled services (ITES)/ cloud, providing services related thereto and to undertake activities associated with its infrastructure development including land acquisition and development for the said purpose,” it said.

The equal joint venture (JV), named AdaniConneX, will focus on building a network of hyperscale data centres in India, starting with Chennai, Navi Mumbai, Noida, Visakhapatnam and Hyderabad.
