Flexenclosure, a Sweden-based developer of prefabricated data centers, has received a large order from Angola Comunicações e Sistemas (ACS), one of the country’s main suppliers of IT solutions and corporate network connectivity. 

Flexenclosure will supply eCentre, a modular prefabricated turnkey data center, to ACS in the Angolan capital Luanda at its new telecom headquarters.

In total, the eCentre supplied will provide an 880 sq m open floor space 1.25MW data center, with Tier III redundant power and cooling. It will also include a 280 sq m warehouse.

The contract covers detailed design, supply, civil works, installation, supervision, commissioning, local training and handover of the complete eCentre to ACS.

The order from ACS was recently signed for an undisclosed fee - indicated to be a double digit million-dollar order - with project completion expected by December 2014.

The data center will be used to host services for corporate and banking customers as well as a high redundancy communication hub for both fiber and satellite communication, aiming to bring enhanced security for banking transactions and data traffic for ACS and its customers.

David King, CEO of Flexenclosure, said he was pleased to see ACS commit to its eCentre system, which he said would deliver benefits in terms of quality, flexibility and speed to operations.

“This is a big deployment, close to 900 sq m, and, including the civil works, it is our biggest order for eCentre to date,” King said.

“It proves our ability to manage big projects and offer best-in-class turnkey solutions to cope with the current data boom in Africa.”

The eCentre will be deployed in Benfica, the rapidly expanding new business and commercial area of Luanda.
