There have again been major advancements across multiple areas of the build project this week, primarily centring around completion of the data hall infrastructure ahead of final electrical and network installations.

The cooling system has come along dramatically this week, with the coolers and fans installed into their final positions, ready for the ductwork and control systems which will bring the entire setup to life.
We have a multi-stage air filtration system, which keeps the air inside of the facility supremely clean at all times. Air is drawn through first stage particle filters in the louvred panels, second stage bag filters which enclose the wet box units, third stage high density wet box filters, and fourth stage cloth filters in the ceiling grid.
