Great Grey Investment has acquired the uncompleted Westpoort Data Center in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The data center was bought from Caransa Group. Although the terms of the deal were not revealed, Tikehu Capital provided financing to Great Grey Investments and Westpoort Datacenter through its Tikehau Special Opportunities II fund (TSO II).

The facility is on Donauweg street, and ground was broken on it in June 2021. Upon completion, the facility will have 100MW of capacity and 100,000 square meters (1 million square feet) of space. The data center will also have three 12-story towers, with the first scheduled for opening in 2023. Caransa Group first announced that it was building the data center in November 2020. AI & HPC provider is reportedly going to be a major tenant of the data center. It will also use sustainable cooling technology in the facility.
