Raxio Kicks Off Data Centre Construction

March 13 , 2021


The Raxio Group, a pan-African data centre developer and operator, launched the construction of its Tier III carrier-neutral colocation data centre at the Addis Abeba ICT Park. The data centre is expected to be operational by the end of 2021. Future-tech, a UK-based firm, has been appointed as the lead consultant on the project, while Yema Architecture, a domestic firm, will be in charge of design localisation and construction supervision. Raxio’s data centre will support the growth of the IT sector and will be a catalyst for highly-skilled job creation in Ethiopia, according to Robert Mullins, president of Raxio Group. Raxio is one of four firms who will be developing data centres at the ICT Park. The other three are Wingu.africa, RedFox Solutions Group, and ScutiX. Wingu broke ground on the construction of its data centre earlier this year.
