DPA Extends Green Energy to East Africa
We recently signed a deal for a 1.2MW solar system for Africa Data Centre, Nairobi Kenya. To date, the solar project has 136 kWh already operational and is producing 193 200 kWh of solar energy per year. Upon completion of the 1.2 MW installation, the Data Centre aims to move towards a 100% renewable energy powered business.
Africa Data Centres is the continent’s first and largest network of interconnected, carrier and cloud neutral data centre facilities, rapidly expanding across the region. This is the third Data Centre installation we will be deploying s this year, with other installations being Liquid Midrand in Johannesburg and Liquid Cape Town.
Proud of this deployment, our CEO Norman Moyo said, “With DPA as a partner, Africa Data Centres will be able to use clean, sustainable energy provided by the sun to save on operational costs as well as reduce their carbon footprint. This is in line with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta’s recent announcement that his government aims to fully transition Kenya to clean renewable energy by 2020”.
Dan Kwach, General Manager, Africa Data Centres East Africa region, said renewable energy would allow them to host, connect and support critical data for local and international companies in an environmentally-friendly way. “As an environmentally conscious business, we are looking to make sustainable solutions standard practice across our facilities to allow for greater cost savings and productivity, which in turn will enable us to better service our customers in the region.”
