Flexenclosure Supplying Second Data Centre to MTN Ivory Coast


Prefabricated data centre specialist Flexenclosure says that it has received a second large order from MTN C te d'Ivoire for a customised eCentre. The two technical facilities are the first prefabricated data centre buildings ever to be deployed in the country.

Consisting of an 84sqm hosted data centre, a 168sqm switching centre and an 84sqm energy centre, the facility is to be installed and commissioned in the city of Bingerville in the eastern part of Abidjan - the economic capital of Ivory Coast - in October 2014.

The new eCentre will have the dual role of both a switching centre and a data centre where MTN's data customers can be hosted. The facility has been customised for MTN and will be delivered as a full turnkey project including civil works and installation of the eCentre modules.

Leadcom, a system integrator, is Flexenclosure's local partner in Ivory Coast and will be responsible for the civil works portion of the project, supporting Flexenclosure's team in the installation and commissioning of the eCentre.
