Chayora, a Hong Kong-based developer of data centres, has finalised agreements with the government of Beichen, Tianjin to commence work on the company’s first hyperscale data centre campus in China.
Sprawling over an 80-acre site, the 300MW facility is expected to serve the greater Beijing region that has a population of more than 150 million in the JingJinJi mega-metropolitan area of northern China.
Work on the first phase of development has already begun and the facility is set to commence operations at the end of 2018.
The first building on Chayora’s Tianjin Data Centre campus has been designed for up to full 2N resilience and redundancy with dedicated substations for a 25MW IT load.
The site will be supported by both gas turbine power generation and advanced grid power.
The company is using prefabricated modular data centre design and construction to ensure quick delivery and to precisely assured tolerances, while providing flexible capacity growth options.
The Chayora Tianjin campus will comprise six large 3,000 rack data centres and three smaller 1,000 rack high-performance computing facilities.
Assured scalability from 2MW to 100MW+ and full turnkey financed solutions form part of the Chayora customer agreements.
In the second quarter of 2018, the company will begin construction of the second hyperscale campus, a 280MW data centre that will serve the greater Shanghai region.
The company is raising further investment resources to augment its existing capital and to pursue its plan to design and build additional data centre campuses across China.
Chayora co-founder and CEO Oliver Jones said: “The continued development of China and its importance to the global economy was underlined by China’s leadership at the 19th National People’s Congress in Beijing in October.
“The creation of world-class technology infrastructure will play a key part in underpinning these goals and Chayora is committed to supporting this achievement.”
