Construction of the expansion began in June 2023, and is split over two phases. This topping-off of the five-story shell building marks the first phase - in total the expansion will bring 70MW of IT capacity to SYD2. The second, and final, phase of the expansion is expected to be completed in 2024.

AirTrunk said: "Adding more than 30MW of custom-built capacity, the expansion supports the continuous and sustainable growth of the cloud.

"With over 160,000 work hours our teams have stayed safe with zero lost time injuries and no critical defects."

SYD2 was first announced in 2019, and launched in March 2021. At full build-out, it will offer 29,000 sqm (312,150 sq ft) of technical space across 24 data halls.

AirTrunk also has the SYD1 campus in the Australian City, which was completed in July 2022, as well as a third in development that will ultimately offer 320MW across nine phases.

The company is owned by Macquarie and also has an Australian campus in Melbourne Victoria which launched in 2017, and campuses either in operation or development in Hong Kong (x2); Singapore; two in Tokyo and another in Osaka, Japan; and Johor, Malaysia.
