AirTrunk has filed documents with the New South Wales Department of Planning to build a new data center campus in Sydney.
SYD3 will be a 320-megawatt data center campus, covering 123,000 square meters (1.3 million square feet) and seven stories, according to Datacenter Dynamics. If the application moves forward, SYD3 will be AirTrunk's largest site in the region, after the 130-megawatt SYD1 and the 110-megawatt SYD2.
The facility will be built in stages and will feature two substations, 30 diesel fuel storage tanks, 216 emergency backup generators, three below-ground water tanks, 172 hybrid dry-coolers and 86 water-cooled chillers. Greenbox Architects also estimates the building will house 2,592 lithium-ion battery cabinets.
The project is expected to require an investment of nearly A$1 billion ($654 million) from start to finish.
