AirTrunk announces second data centre in Tokyo

AirTrunk has announced plans to build a new 110+ MW hyperscale data centre in West Tokyo.

Dubbed TOK2, the site will span more than 4.6 hectares of land and will be designed to a PUE of 1.15, utilising direct air-free cooling.

The new site follows the opening of AirTrunk’s East Tokyo data centre, TOK1, less than six months ago, and will be the company’s eighth data centre, joining AirTrunk’s SYD1, SYD2, SYD3 and MEL1 in Australia, SGP1 in Singapore, HKG1 in Hong Kong and TOK1 in Japan. TOK2 increases AirTrunk’s capacity to over 410MW in Japan and 1.2GW in total across Asia Pacific and Japan.
