Arcus Infrastructure has announced that Arcus European Infrastructure Fund 3 SCSp (AEIF3), has acquired as part of its regional edge colocation strategy, an 85% shareholding in European Data Hub S.A. AEIF3’s stake in EDH has been acquired from the Luxembourg-based Wagner Group.

EDH operates a data centre in Luxembourg, a market in which demand for data centre capacity currently outstrips supply. It provides premium colocation capacity and related services to its customers.

The data centre has a current sellable IT power capacity of 1.2MW, 1,750 sqm of sellable IT whitespace and is certified, among others, to the EN50600 VK4 and Uptime Institute Tier IV high availability standards. It is also fitting out existing floorspace with the required electrical and mechanical infrastructure to increase sellable IT power capacity to 3.0MW, with the first stage being completed in Q1 2023.

EDH aligns with Arcus’ strategy to ensure that its investments have a positive ESG impact. The facility is certified ISO 50001 (a reputed international standard which targets energy efficiency) and its energy consumption is 100% renewably sourced. EDH also adheres to the European Code of Conduct for Energy Efficiency in Data Centres. Arcus plans to further improve the energy efficiency of the facility and strengthen EDH’s ESG policies.

EDH serves a diverse blue-chip client base including financial institutions, IT services companies, telecommunications companies and several European Union institutions.
