Orange selects ENGIE for Côte d'Ivoire data centre

Orange selects ENGIE for operation and maintenance of Côte d'Ivoire data centre

ENGIE has been selected for the operation and maintenance of the Orange Services Group's data centre in Abidjan, for a five-year contract that will start early June 2019.

This data centre of the latest generation, built by the Orange Service Group (GOS), is one of the few data centres existing in West Africa complying with the Level IV classification. According to this classification, it has the required redundancies to ensure continuity of service in all circumstances.

The contract includes preventive maintenance of the multi-technical lots of the data centre buildings, including the electrical substations, high voltage, cooling and air conditioning, Central Management Technology, fire alarm systems, security and control, video surveillance and access control.

This contract demonstrates ENGIE's ambition to accelerate its development in energy services in West and Central Africa and to become one of the leaders in energy efficiency, installation and maintenance services in Africa.

Built on the Free Zone of Grand-Bassam, located 40 km from Abidjan, the economic capital of Côte d'Ivoire, the building has a floor area of 1450 m² including a 420 m² computer room. This next-generation data centre has a power capacity of 1.3 MW and a design which is oriented towards reliability and energy optimisation of data storage.

The centre represents a strategic infrastructure for Orange in West Africa and primarily hosts Orange's service platforms of its Middle East – Africa subsidiaries but it is also a co-location space for BtoB customers’ needs in this region.
