Edge data centre provider, Penta Infra, has started construction of their new colocation data centre in Hamburg. 

Integrated into the existing campus, the Hamburg data centre will provide an IT capacity of 4.4MW over 2.500m2 of IT space. The data centre will operate on renewable energy with a front facade installed with integrated solar panels. 

The data centre facility will also repurpose heat. Penta Infra said this concept was successfully implemented in their Copenhagen data centre. The initiative provided heat to around 1,500 homes.

Penta Infra said the expansion of the Hamburg data centre aims to strengthen the company’s infrastructure.

“Our decision to expand in Hamburg is also a testament to the considerable demand we have experienced from both existing and new customers. This new data centre marks an exciting chapter in our ambition to expand our footprint across Europe,” said Patrick van der Wilt, Chief Commercial Officer at Pentra Infra.

Penta Infra said it selected the site due to Hamburg’s strategic location in Northern Germany. Van der Wilt added Hamburg is a city of trade that also symbolises a balance between robust economic activity and environmental awareness.

“This balance aligns perfectly with our mission to offer our current and future clients some of the most modern and sustainable data centre facilities in Europe,” added van der Wilt.

Currently, Penta Infra has a portfolio of 11 data centres located in Germany, France, The Netherlands, and Denmark.
