Datacentre connection, Yarraville VIC

AusNet will help get the Microsoft datacenter in Yarraville up and running by installing underground transmission lines that will connect to Brooklyn Terminal Station.

Project overview

AusNet will manage the construction and operation of new underground electricity cables to supply power for the Cawley Road datacentre.

Construction works will begin later in 2023.  We anticipate the cable installation works will be complete by mid 2024.

Upcoming works

There will be planned works throughout 2023 as we install the energy infrastructure needed to connect the data centre.

We’ll give the public advance notice of these works, including any impacts to neighbouring businesses, residents and traffic impacts.

If you have questions about our construction schedule, we encourage you to contact our Community Engagement team.
