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. 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.
