The Raxio Group (Raxio), a leading pan-African data centre developer and operator, held a ground-breaking ceremony that formally kicks off the construction of its premier Tier-III carrier-neutral colocation data centre, located at Beluluane Industrial Park (MozParks) in Maputo, Mozambique (Raxio MZ1).
The event was attended by members of the government, including the Governor of Maputo Province, His Excellency Julio Parruque, executives of MozParks, members of the media, customers and senior representatives of the Raxio Group.
During the event, Raxio laid the first brick of the future facility, marking the beginning of its construction. This follows a detailed process of design development and technical optimization to achieve high operational efficiency that will serve as a benchmark for the region.
“We’re delighted to break ground on another facility, which demonstrates Raxio’s commitment to serving the region’s economy and digital transformation journey,” said Robert Mullins, CEO of Raxio Group. “More and more Mozambican individuals and businesses join the digital community every day and this number continues to grow at a fast pace.
“This is why access to stable, mission-critical environments in Mozambique is more important now than ever before. We are looking forward to supporting the country’s digital growth by developing the first hyperscale ready colocation data centre that will be operated by a team of highly skilled Mozambican professionals.”Click below to share this article
