ABOUT

AQ Compute is a sub-brand of Aquila Capital, an investment and asset development company focused on generating and managing essential assets on behalf of its clients.

AQ Compute provides data centre and colocation services around Europe powered by renewable energy sources. It pursues a pan-European data centre strategy and anticipates an ever-increasing demand for computing capacity with a strong focus on sustainability, which is reflected in its “green line”. Client data is hosted on sustainable infrastructure, which includes building materials, power supplies and the recovery of excess heat. Besides having ecological advantages, AQ Compute’s approach has economic advantages for its clients.

AQ Compute focuses on the European continent with an emphasis on secondary markets. Growing markets, such as the Nordics or the Iberian Peninsula, offer ideal conditions for the development and operation of sustainable data centres with excellent access to renewable energy.

To provide its clients with a wide range of locations, AQ Compute is working on entering additional markets in Europe. Its first data centres are located in Oslo in Norway and Barcelona in Spain – with more to follow.

 

 

Decarbonising your data

Our mission is to provide modular, carbon-neutral data centre capacities across Europe, powered by renewable energy sources, following green building standards, recovering and recycling the energy and compensating for each MW used with another MW of renewable energy – enabling our clients to reduce their carbon footprints.
