Africa Data Centres has revealed its plans for two new data centers in Nairobi, Kenya. The data center firm said it had begun work on a second data center with up to 20MW of IT capacity. It also says it is already securing land for a third data center. According to Africa Data Centres, the two projects will cost up to $200 million.

When Liquid Telecom (now Liquid Intelligent Technologies) opened Nairobi’s East Africa Data Centre in 2013, it was hailed as the largest data center in East Africa. The data center offered 5,382 square feet of whitespace and room for 640 racks across four stories. The facility was further expanded in 2018 to add an extra 5,382 square feet of white space. Liquid Intelligent Technologies then launched Africa Data Centres in 2018.

Africa Data Centres is currently developing or operating data centers in Lomé, Togo; South Africa; Lagos, Nigeria, and Samrand and Midrand. Earlier in September, the data center firm revealed a $500 million goal to develop ten data centers across ten African countries in the next two years.
