AI computing requires high-performance GPU processors that use far more power and create significantly more heat than traditional data centre chips. Legacy data centres built for general purpose computing, are not capable of accommodating GPU servers, their densities and storage capacity. Nor can traditional air-cooling dissipate the heat generated by these far more powerful processors.

GreenSquareDC's 96MW WA1 Data Centre is designed to be both AI-ready and highly sustainable, with “Ultimate Flexibility” data halls which allow customers to deploy into either Air Cooled, Direct to Chip and/or Immersion Cooling environments. This will enable customers to scale up as their workloads evolve, ranging from standard 5kw to 10kw racks, all the way up to 50kw and beyond, which is perfect for AI capable workloads. WA1 will source energy from 100% renewable sources, run its backup generators on HVO Fuel and aims to be the first ‘water positive’ hyperscale Data Centre operator in the APAC region, in part by using Aquifer Free Cooling (AFC), which can provide for up to 40MW of free/waterless cooling (and was pioneered by CSIRO at Pawsey Supercomputer in Perth). To operate WA1 on 100% certified green energy is $55m cheaper than operating in Sydney, according to Alinta Energy, based upon a total capacity of 96MW.
