“Although we experienced a very difficult year in 2022 due to continuing Covid restrictions, our project is on track, having completed the upper structure construction as per the original program,” said Murray Mo, the project director responsible for construction of the Shanghai campus. “We showed our commitment to Health & Safety with zero incidents or injuries during the construction, achieved 400,000 safe man-hours and continue our preparation to hand over for operation in Q1 2023.”

Upon completion of the entire campus, Chayora will have more that 200MW of IT load and 35,000 racks in China, split between the Tianjin Campus which launched in October 2020, and the Shanghai facility.
