Linesight facilitates AirTrunk’s data centre expansion with cost management solutions

Sydney Australia, 8 October 2018 – Global construction consultancy, Linesight, has announced it is working with hyperscale data centre specialist, AirTrunk, to deliver sophisticated cost management services for the expansion of AirTrunk’s two flagship facilities in Australia.

The expansion is underway and will see AirTrunk add significant capacity to its Western Sydney and Melbourne data centres. These developments will create two of the largest independent data centres in the Asia-Pacific region at 90MW and 84MW respectively.

AirTrunk’s hyperscale data centres are designed for cloud, content and large enterprise customers in need of a secure and reliable place to house their sizable and rapidly growing volumes of data.

Linesight’s Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand, John Carleton, said AirTrunk’s expansion would make a significant contribution to meeting the growing demand from data-reliant industries in Australia.

“With the uptake of digitisation in business across the Asia Pacific region, as well as growing populations, data storage requirements are increasing at 40% per annum[1], with the Asia Pacific region contributing significantly to growth. As a result, we’re seeing accelerating demand for hyperscale data centres in markets such as Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan and Korea. Linesight is pleased to be working with AirTrunk, to help them meet the requirements of this tremendous demand in the Asia-Pacific region.”

Mr Carleton continued, “It is an exciting time to be involved in this sector, and Linesight is pleased to contribute our specialist knowledge and local experience to the technological development and infrastructure in the region.”
