Flexenclosure says that it has won a multi million dollar tender from MTN C te d'Ivoire for a complete data centre consisting of a 168 sqm switching centre an 84 sqm energy centre and an 84 sqm hosted data centre.
The data centre is to be installed and commissioned in the first quarter of 2014.
The order is part of a new partnership between the two companies for the installation of a data centre in Yopougon, a municipality in the northern part of Abidjan, and will have the dual role of both a switching centre together 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, installation of the eight eCentre modules, and the re-location of some existing power equipment to the new site.
eCentre is a custom designed, prefabricated data centre solution that is pre-built in Sweden and equipped to house and power data and telecom equipment.
Leadcom Integrated Solutions, Flexenclosure's local partner in Ivory Coast, will be responsible for the civil works portion of the project and support Flexenclosure's team in the installation and commissioning of the modules.
