DCI Data Centers has secured development approval from Blacktown City Council for a new 36 MW data centre to be located in Eastern Creek.

DCI Data Centers has confirmed its latest Asia Pacific data centre development, announcing its development approval for a 36-megawatt (MW) facility in Sydney, Australia.

The facility is scheduled for service readiness in the fourth quarter of 2022 and will be located in Eastern Creek in close proximity to Sydney’s key data centres and connectivity hubs, thereby enabling direct and low latency access to Sydney.

The state-of-the-art A$400 million facility, named SYD02, will be a new purpose-built project, specifically designed for hyperscale cloud, content and managed service providers. DCI expects the facility will also set industry-leading benchmarks for water and energy efficiency.

DCI’s Chief Executive Officer Malcolm Roe said: “The team are delighted to have secured this approval which will be a crucial part of our three-stage strategy for this key site. We are also very excited to be leading the industry in delivering new cooling technologies to significantly enhance our power utilisation effectiveness and minimising our impact on the environment.”

DCI’s continued investment into Australia will bring significant benefits to the local economy via the creation of jobs throughout both the construction phase and ongoing operational management of the site.

DCI is expanding its existing footprint from Australia and New Zealand into Asia. Its mission is to become the preferred partner for highly secure data centre solutions to itsr public and private cloud service customers.
