French firm APL picked to steer Carrier Hotel project in Lomé

(Togo First) - For the Carrier Hotel which is to be built in Lomé, the government of Togo has decided to trust the position of prime contractor to APL, a French firm with a 30-year experience in the establishment of data centers.

Under the contract, the company will be the prime contractor while the construction will be carried out by a local firm, BTP Centro. CFAO Technologies & Energy will handle the equipment, energy and environment components.  In effect, APL will lead, steer and coordinate the project and be in charge of its commissioning as well. It will also make sure it is certified by Uptime Institute and complies with environmental standards, among others.

Let’s note the French firm is also active on another project ongoing in Togo. This is the “Tier III évolutif Tier IV” datacenter (500 m2 of server rooms). For this project, APL provides expertise (through Neutreo, an engineering study office it has acquired) relating to supply of solar power on which the infrastructure will partially run on.

The Carrier Hotel, a co-sharing data hosting center, is financed by the World Bank (nearly XOF12 billion), under the West African Regional Communication and Infrastructure Development Project (WARCIP). This project should improve connectivity (making it safer and more reliable) in Togo, and reducing its cost hence benefiting both SMEs and the public administration. Construction works are expected to last 15 months.
