The Victorian site of the biogas firm LMS Energy is currently home to a renewable modular data center from Peth company DC Two. The facility, which is powered by LMS Electricity’s biogas site, which produces energy from landfill waste, is the ASX-listed DC Two’s “first 100% renewable energy site.”
DC Two promotes the facility as a source of affordable, renewable energy for businesses looking to cut expenses and earn ESG certifications.
Its modular data centers are advertised as being appropriate for high performance or supercomputing applications and are built on ISO-standard sea containers and non-ruggedized insulated variations.
Moreover, Bitcoin and cryptocurrency miners are some of DC Two’s target customers for its modular data center hosting options.
According to Blake Burton, DC Two Managing Director, their Victoria and Midwest data centers are now a proven, first-of-its-kind concept in Australia, and are anticipated to offer a solid, predictable revenue stream for the Company. Very soon, the company’s two regional data centers will produce nearly twice as much money annually as it did in the fiscal year 2021.
The Victorian facility’s initial capacity is 800 kW, but DC Two stated that as the firm looks for a deal to access and sell space in LMS Energy’s module, the capacity will rise to 1.2 MW.
“The current contract has sold approximately 763kw of power for DC Two’s module, with all customer equipment in the process of being installed and commissioned over the coming weeks,” the company said.
