Asia-Pacific hyperscale data centre specialist, AirTrunk has said that it has successfully completed the fifth building at its 130MW SYD1 data centre campus located in Western Sydney, Australia.
This build showcases AirTrunk’s trademark ability to deploy huge capacity at unprecedented speed and scale to support the rapid growth of our large cloud customers, AirTrunk said in a LinkedIn post. SYD1, AirTrunk’s first data centre, opened in 2017, offering a total of 130MW and bringing significant investment, job creation and innovation to Western Sydney.
The 40+MW phase was delivered two months ahead of schedule, with zero lost time injuries (LTIs) across 220,000 work hours. AirTrunk also pointed out that just up the road, its new 320+MW SYD3 facility is being developed as a connected campus, allowing new and existing customers to grow within this strategic cloud availability zone.
Largest Hyperscale DC
AirTrunk made the SYD3 announcement in November2021, which joins SYD1 (130+ MW) in Western Sydney and SYD2 (110+ MW) in the city’s north. SYD3 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.
Since pioneering hyperscale data centres in Asia Pacific with the launch of its first data centres in Sydney and Melbourne in late 2017, AirTrunk has strategically expanded into key markets across Asia including Singapore, Hong Kong, and Tokyo. Earlier this year, it launched a new region in Sydney’s north to enable further cloud growth for customers in Sydney, one of the top 10 cloud markets globally.
