"Being one of the top four data centre markets in Europe and the eighth largest data centre market globally, the Netherlands is a strategic market for Keppel DC REIT. We are pleased to be able to add to our portfolio quality and green data centre located in the key technology hub of Eindhoven. With this acquisition, we also diversify our portfolio base with the addition of a well-established data centre client and we look forward to establishing strong ties with this client. With this asset, we continue to leverage the strong fundamentals of the Netherlands to provide our investors with stable and sustainable returns.”
