AirTrunk expands in Tokyo with $1b-plus data centre

Macquarie-backed AirTrunk will build a $1 billion-plus hyperscale data centre in Tokyo, its second for the Japanese capital, as the home-grown operation establishes itself as Asia’s biggest player in the sector outside of China.

To be known as TOK2, the 110-megawatt facility will be AirTrunk’s eighth data centre, joining a portfolio which includes assets in Sydney, Melbourne, Singapore, Hong Kong and an existing $5 billion data centre in Tokyo, which opened last year.
