Vantage has opened its first data center (JNB11) in Africa after breaking ground in 2021. The facility offers 16MW of critical IT capacity across 130,000 square feet (12,000 square meters). The project was delivered in 10 months, 10 days ahead of schedule, with zero lost-time incidents over 1.5 million working hours.

With an investment totaling more than $1 billion, Vantage’s 30-acre (12 hectares) campus will include 80MW of IT capacity and more than 650,000 square feet (60,000 square meters) across three data centers once fully developed.

Vantage is also continuing to develop its first 55MW Frankfurt campus, located in Offenbach, approximately 30 kilometers from Raunheim. Both campuses will offer customers a total of 111MW of IT capacity in the Frankfurt region.

“Vantage continues to develop data center campuses in the most vital locations across EMEA to support some of the world’s leading technology companies,” said Antoine Boniface, president, EMEA at Vantage Data Centers.

Frankfurt II marks Vantage’s ninth campus in EMEA, six of which are now operational (Berlin I, Cardiff, Frankfurt I, Johannesburg, Warsaw and Zurich).
