Well done to our team in the Lekki suburb of Lagos in Nigeria, who are pulling out all the stops to ensure the construction and commissioning of OADC Lagos remains on schedule.
As planned, the first phase will be ready for clients in Q2 2022, and when fully operational, this US$150 million, Tier III certified data centre will support up to 20MW site power load across more than 7,200 square metres of white space – sufficient for up to 3,275 racks.
The flexibility of our data centre design approach enables us to expand capacity quickly, and the site power load at OADC Lagos will be fully scalable to 40MW as market demand grows.
Our Lagos facility is part of our first phase of data centre construction. Over the next five years, we are committing US$500m of investment into data centre deployment in Africa to support growing demand from cloud providers and the wholesale community for a partner offering the highest levels of flexibility, responsiveness and scalability in supporting their expansion initiatives in Africa.
