Macquarie Telecom Group is pleased to announce that its Macquarie Data Centres business has entered into a contract for the provision of approximately 10MW of capacity (IT Load) at its Macquarie Park data center campus.
As a result of the customer win, Macquarie’s total CAPEX is expected to increase by AU$40 to AU$50 million this financial year, totalling AU$180 to AU$200 million. This is anticipated to create hundreds of new jobs over the year ahead.
David Hirst, Group Executive at Macquarie Data Centres, said: “We’re pleased to welcome the contract with this leading corporation and to provision 10MWs of IT load at IC3 East, our newest data center located in the Sydney North Zone – and Australia’s answer to Silicon Valley – an area known for its cloud ecosystems and connectivity.”
He continued: “The IC3 East build is progressing well and we continue to expect completion in February 2021, on time and in budget. To secure an anchor tenant before the build is complete is testament to the quality of the MDC team and our strategy. Over 1MW of wholesale and corporate capacity remains available at opening on one whole floor with further options to expand within IC3 East.”Click below to share this article
