Asia-Pacific hyperscale data centre specialist, AirTrunk has announced plans to build a new Western Sydney data centre, named AirTrunk SYD3 (SYD3). The hyperscale data centre will be the largest single campus in the Asia-Pacific region (excluding China) at 320+ megawatts (MW) of capacity.
AirTrunk’s third Sydney data centre, joins SYD1 (130+ MW) in Western Sydney and
SYD2 (110+ MW) in the city’s north. The ‘AirTrunk Western Sydney Region’
expands to 450+ MW with the SYD1 and SYD3 connected campuses allowing new and
existing customers to grow seamlessly within the strategic cloud availability
and Chief Executive Officer of AirTrunk, Robin Khuda, says: “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.”
will include nine phases set across 8.3 hectares (20.5 acres) delivering 320+
MW of IT load and will be powered by a 132KV onsite substation. Like AirTrunk’s
other data centres, SYD3 is designed to an industry-low power usage
effectiveness (PUE) of 1.15 and will utilise approximately 80% less water than
a traditional data centre. It will feature a range of innovations during design,
construction, and operation to deliver efficiencies and minimise carbon impact
for customers and communities.
data centre will bring a new multi-billion-dollar investment into the State of
New South Wales (NSW) and will create hundreds of new jobs in Western Sydney
during both the construction and operational phases.
brings AirTrunk’s Asia-Pacific platform to a total of seven hyperscale data
centres (including four in Australia) with a total capacity of more than a
gigawatt (GW), providing a connected, secure, efficient, and sustainable home
for the cloud across the region.
