Sustainable Design for Environmental Impact Reduction

According to the statement, in line with AirTrunk's sustainability initiatives, the design of the SYD2 data centre incorporates measures to minimise its environmental impact. With an industry-low design power usage effectiveness (PUE) of 1.15, the data centre employs cutting-edge technologies such as high-temperature air-cooled chillers with free cooling capabilities.

Additionally, customised fan wall units optimise waterside economisation at the chillers, resulting in a 20 percent reduction in cooling equipment energy consumption.
