The new hyperscale facility will be named SYD3, and will be AirTrunk’s third data centre in Sydney.
According to the company, the hyperscale data centre will be the largest single campus in the Asia-Pacific region (excluding China), providing a capacity of 320+MW.
SYD3 will join AirTrunk’s SYD1 in Western Sydney and SYD2 in the city’s north, which provide 130+MW and 110+MW capacity, respectively.
The facility will include nine phases set across 8.3 hectares, powered by a 132KV onsite substation. AirTrunk states that SYD3 is designed to a PUE of 1.15 and will use roughly 80% less water than a traditional data centre.
AirTrunk’s APAC platform now totals seven hyperscale data centres, including four in Australia, with a total capacity of more than a gigawatt (GW).
Robin Khuda, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of AirTrunk, said: “It’s an exciting day as we circle back to Western Sydney, where it all began for AirTrunk when we launched our flagship SYD1 data centre in late 2017.
“With SYD1 nearing full capacity, SYD3’s location less than one kilometre away, will help our major technology customers scale with ease and creates synergies and efficiencies between the connected campuses.”
