Africa Data Centres (ADC) has already begun work on its plans to construct a 10MW facility in Lagos, Nigeria.
According to TechCentral, the Nigerian data centre will form “(ADC)’ West African hub” and join its network of facilities across East and Southern Africa.
ADC CEO, Stephane Duproz says that the Lagos build will help spur the Nigerian economy.
“The stimulus effect to the economy of digitisation is well documented and Nigeria is ready for this technology boon. Furthermore, our construction policy is to uplift the community as far as possible, employing local contractors and creating work opportunities within the communities we enter – so the job creation opportunities are realised at both grass-roots and hi-tech levels.”
