AirTrunk launches new HKG1 data centre

It has over 20 megawatts and is located in a key hub.

Hyperscale data centre specialist AirTrunk has opened its new data centre HKG1 in Hong Kong, amidst the company’s rapid expansion in the Asia Pacific region.

The HKG1 data centre has over 20 megawatts and is strategically located in a key hub for international connectivity. AirTrunk has converted an eight-storey industrial building into a hyperscale data centre to support cloud customers ramping up in the region.

HKG1 was completed despite challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“COVID-19 has accelerated already increasing demand for hyperscale data centre infrastructure across the Asia-Pacific region. We build our hyperscale facilities at record speed, but safely and to the highest quality standard,” AirTrunk founder and chief executive officer Robin Khuda said.

HKG1 has also become one of the most efficient data centres in Hong Kong with a power usage effectiveness of 1.35

“The shift to cloud-based solutions lowers total electricity consumption overheads and emissions, providing a more energy efficient solution for our customers and reducing the environmental impact,” Khuda said.

HKG1 joins other AirTrunk hyperscale data centres in Singapore, Australia, and Japan.
