Macquarie Data Centres, part of Macquarie Telecom Group, has announced a new data center at its Macquarie Park Data Center Campus in Sydney.
Intellicenter 3 Super West will be designed, constructed and operated to meet the needs of corporate, government and multi-national customers and enhance New South Wales’ cybersecurity infrastructure and capabilities.
Macquarie has commenced a State Significant Development Application process to build the 32-megawatt (MW) IT load facility. Located in the Sydney North Zone at the Macquarie Park Data Centre Campus the new facility will be the largest data center on the campus, bringing the total IT load of the campus to 50MW.
The company expects the project to create more than 1,200 jobs in construction, engineering, cybersecurity and other fields. It expects to complete construction of phase one of IC3 Super West in the second half of calendar year 2023, subject to final board approvals, with planning permission expected to be granted in early 2022.
“This data center will attract new investment into Australia from multinationals looking to expand in the Asia Pacific region,” said David Tudehope, CEO, Macquarie Telecom Group. “The New South Wales digital economy is rapidly growing, and this project will create world-class infrastructure and valuable long-term jobs in the digital and cybersecurity sector.”Click below to share this article
