CDC Data Centres has announced expansion plans in Australia. The company has said it will expand its Sydney campus with two new buildings, adding more than 100MW, with the new additions seeing $1 billion in investment. This follows the official opening of its new $1.5 billion data center campus at Eastern Creek in Sydney’s west, upon which work first began in 2018. These further two buildings will add to EC1, which offers 7MW, EC2 which offers 20MW, EC3, which has a capacity of 42MW, and EC4 offering 54MW. 

Speaking about this development, CDC founder and CEO Greg Boorer, commented: “Today is an important milestone for CDC in Australia. After investing more than $1 billion at Eastern Creek, in just four years we have created four world-class, purpose-built data centers featuring the highest technology, security, availability and sustainability standards for the industry."

Adding: “The Eastern Creek Campus, our flagship in Australia, is an important part of this growth plan. Already the four data centers are delivering a combined capacity of 123MW, and we will start construction on two more on this site next year — to add another 108MW of capacity.”
