As part of the company’s AU$70 million (US$54.3 million) investment, DCI’s Kidman Park site in Adelaide will be increased by 4MW taking it up to 5.4MW of total capacity. Construction is due to commence imminently with completion due by mid-2022.
The Australian data centre operator’s claim that it will build “the state’s most energy-efficient secure facility” that is “able to meet defense-grade security” requirement is an interesting one and further demonstrates that the company is hoping to target local defence, aerospace, and hi-tech industries.
DCI is headquartered in Sydney and owned by Canadian fund Brookfield Asset Management. Since it was founded in 2015, the company has completed development of data centres in Adelaide and Sydney. These latest announcements will more than double its existing capacity.
