Gondola – Keppel Data Centre

Location: Artarmon, NSW 2064
Contractor: Climatech NSW Pty Ltd

Keppel DC Sydney 1 (KDC SYD 1) is a greenfield purpose-built colocation data centre that is situated in Gore Hill Technology Park, a vibrant commercial and technology hub located 9km Northwest from Sydney’s central business district.

KDC SYD 1 is strategically located adjacent to Gore Hill Data Centre, which is owned by the Keppel Group, facilitating our customers’ ease of expansion within close proximity. Located along one of Sydney’s main power and data arteries, the data centre enjoys excellent access to large, secure power sources and multiple carrier networks.

The project is currently under construction (started in November 2019) and targeted for delivery by 2022. When fully completed, KDC SYD 1 will feature approximately 57,000 sq ft of Gross Floor Area built to Tier III equivalent specifications.

Keppel DC (Keppel Data Centres) has a strong track record of offering a comprehensive range of wholesale, build-to-suit and colocation data centre solutions built to the highest industry standards. Together with other members of Keppel Group (Keppel DC REIT and Keppel Capital), Keppel Data Centres owns and operates a global portfolio of more than 26 data centres located in key data centre hubs across Asia Pacific and Europe.

The contractor approached Armcor to provide the right unit to suit the needs of the data centre.

The project was for supply, installation, and commissioning of two (2) rooftop packaged Humidity and Temperature Control units, to provide a practical solution for temperature and humidity control.

Standard equipment configuration includes EC plug fans, stainless steel drain tray and associated controls. With nominal capacities of 4,800 l/sec, and cooling capacities of 170kW, the HTC units were project specific, designed for the appropriate climatic conditions.

Along with the HTC units, Precise Comfort Control PCC-30C, High Level Controller (Building Management Systems (BMS)) was also supplied to control multiple building services from one central location. These Building Management Systems (BMS) are becoming more and more common place in commercial buildings.

With the new equipment installed the data centre can rest for years to come with an efficient system to fulfil the requirements.
