The site will be able to function indefinitely without drawing any power from Eskom by using natural gas piped in from Mozambique. It will, however, have connections to Eskom and back-up diesel generators in case there is an interruption in the supply of gas

MTN has commissioned Sasol, which drills the gas, to build a 3,5km extension to the energy giant’s pipeline into the Centurion site. The facility, which will cost at least R100m, excluding the cost of land, will also function as a key switching and transmission centre for MTN’s network. MTN Business, which provides converged communications solutions, will make extensive use of the 1 500sqm facility, which is under construction near the SA Mint. MTN’s internal IT department will use other parts of the centre
