Jul 28, 2022 | Posted by MadalineDunn

Vantage Data Centers has announced the ground-breaking of its first facility on its 80MW Johannesburg campus, a project which launched in 2021. The two-story facility called JHB11 reportedly offers 16MW of capacity of 130,000sqft square feet (12,000 square meters). 

According to the company, the campus was built in line with its sustainability commitments, and offers renewable energy options - provided in part through its 20-year PPA signed with SolarAfrica, a project which will provide 87MWp of renewable energy to supplement the local grid. It will also operate with limited carbon emissions and maintain energy efficiency in line with PUE standards. 

“Our rapid turnaround on the construction of our first Johannesburg facility has allowed us to more quickly meet demand for hyperscale data centers in the area,” said Justin Jenkins, chief operating officer, EMEA at Vantage Data Centers. “At Vantage, we pride ourselves on not only our speed to market, but also our commitment to become part of the local community and cement our reputation as a reliable data center partner in the region. This project created hundreds of jobs that will continue into the next phase of construction, and we thank our teams for their dedication and commitment to deliver such a high-quality product for our customers.”
