A Power-use Strategy that Benefits the Environment
The MainOne Cable System provides telecommunications capacity, through an undersea fibre optic cable system, linking countries on the Western coast of Africa to Europe.
MainOne’s MDXI Data Centre, located in the Lekki- Ajah area of Lagos State, Nigeria, is connected to the Nigerian national grid, through a dedicated 330/33KV, 100MVA transformer. The Centre also has four back-up generators, with a total power generating capacity of 5,400KVA. MainOne’s forward-looking investment in a direct national grid connection provides regular grid-power, reducing the need for diesel-generated power by up to 100%. This significant offset produces environmental benefits, through the reduction of harmful carbon dioxide gas emissions into the atmosphere.
