Edsger was established as a joint-venture platform business in the US to acquire operational and business-critical data centres to create a portfolio of diversified assets. The objective is to aggregate a portfolio of 10-15 data centres, with a total value equity investment value of $500 million, together with two JV partners, including a proven US data centre operator and a reputable Canadian financial investor, with a proven track-record of investing in quality infrastructure assets.

Edsger targets data centres that are located in key strategic markets, operated by high quality tenants under medium to long-term leases, and free from technology risk. So far, Edsger has acquired five fully-contracted data centres located in key markets such as Dallas and Silicon Valley, with each offering approximately 5-10MW of critical power capacity. Edsger is evaluating a pipeline of five to ten potential add-on opportunities, which would complete Edsger’s asset aggregation strategy.
