NEXTDC to develop Darwin data centre
NEXTDC has revealed it will build a data centre in Darwin, Australia’s Northern Territory.
The firm says it will expand its digital infrastructure platform with the construction of the new data centre facility.
In August the company revealed it had received planning approval to build a new data centre in Melbourne.
NEXTDC added that the new data centre will expand its network of data centres which will be “ideally positioned to support the growing needs of the Territory’s digital economy”.
“We are honoured to have been selected by the Northern Territory Government as its strategic partner to work together to continue to strengthen the Territory’s digital industry,” said NEXTDC CEO, Craig Scroggie.
“This digital infrastructure development represents an important investment for the NT, that will further support and accelerate the growth of the northern digital gateway in Australia”.
The company will work in partnership with the Northern Territory government to support Northern Australia’s digital economy and its digital gateway to Asia.
“We’re excited to work with NEXTDC to build this world-class data centre in Darwin,” said NT Chief Minister Michael Gunner.
“We want to make the Territory a hub for digital industries and investment, and now we can look forward to building infrastructure that will create new jobs and opportunities, which will support local tradies.”
