Africa's fastest-growing

data centre company.

OADC has made a significant impact on the market in terms of its rapid speed in building a network of data centres and flexible client solutions.

A vision for Africa

With the development of Africa’s digital economy a significant driving force for the continent’s economic growth, the launch of Open Access Data Centres (OADC) represents a major milestone for Africa: a US$500 million-plus, multi-year investment programme that will strengthen key elements of the continent’s digital infrastructure.

OADC is supporting and accelerating Africa’s digital transformation by constructing and operating a pan-Africa network of world-class, client-centric data centre facilities, fully connected into Africa’s largest network infrastructure and specifically designed to meet the demands of telcos, ISPs, the cloud operator and wholesale community, major enterprises and governments.

Committed to minimising environmental impact through use of Green technologies and initiatives, we are pursuing the internationally-recognised Green Star rating for our facilities; recognising sustainability in design, construction and operation. We are also seeking ISO 14001 and 50001 accreditations, confirming our environmental and energy management credentials.

Open Access Data Centres (OADC) was established in 2018 with African developmental support/funding from IFC and Proparco; now part-owned by 10 major African telecom operators, leading Africa focused private equity fund manager, African Capital Alliance (ACA) and IFC.

WIOCC Group is the parent company of Group companies Open Access Data Centres (OADC), WIOCC and Open Access Technical Services (OATS). 

WIOCC Group is pioneering and accelerating Africa’s digital transformation, creating an environment in which all Africans can take advantage of world-class technology developments to
build better lives, better businesses and a better world.

It is achieving this by deploying converged open-access digital infrastructure across Africa; infrastructure that will expedite and underpin Africa’s digital transformation.
