AirTrunk to build 110MW data centre as second Japan hyperscale facility

AirTrunk on Monday announced plans to build its second hyperscale data centre in Japan, with the Tokyo facility raising the Macquarie-backed operator’s capacity to 410 megawatts in the country and 1.2 gigawatts across Asia Pacific.

The new data centre, known as TOK2, will provide 110MW of capacity in western Tokyo to complement AirTrunk’s existing 300MW TOK1 campus serving eastern Tokyo.
