May 22, 2023 | Posted by Abdul-Rahman Oladimeji

Penta Infra has finished an expansion initiative at its Copenhagen, Denmark, data center. Penta, an Amsterdam-based private equity fund specializing in European data centers with operations in the Netherlands, Germany, France, and Denmark, was established in 2015. Through a new financing agreement, it raised $83.5 million last year, with interest payments tied to sustainability objectives.

Sentia sold its data center in Glostrup, Copenhagen, to Penta in 2021. The data center is now known as CPH1. The data center was purchased by Sentia in 2016. The Tier III quality data center is ISO 27001, 27002, and ISAE 3402 Type II certified. Connected to the COBRA Fiber-Optic Cable between Amsterdam and Copenhagen, it is scalable to 10MW. The company owns more than a dozen data centers across the four countries.

It presently has facilities in Germany at Leipzig, Berlin (2), Düsseldorf, Cologne, and Hamburg with a total capacity of 21MW, and it is developing additional facilities in Munich and Hamburg. In May 2021, Penta Infra acquired the data center in Hamburg. It has three data centers in the Netherlands, located in Geleen and Leeuwarden (2), with a total capacity of 2MW. The last two were acquired in 2020 with the acquisition of DataCenter Fryslan. The corporation acquired Sungard's French campus in Paris earlier this year.
