Frank­furt a. M./ Dres­den — The Frank­furt office of the inter­na­tio­nal law firm Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP has advi­sed INVEN CAPITAL on a further invest­ment in the Dres­­den-based company Cloud&Heat Tech­no­lo­gies GmbH. In addi­tion to INVEN CAPITAL, the London-based inves­tor ETF Part­ners also parti­ci­pa­ted in this new finan­cing round of EUR 10 million.

Cloud&Heat Tech­no­lo­gies is a tech­no­logy company that designs, builds and opera­tes envi­ron­men­tally friendly, water-cooled, public and private data centers (also as contai­ne­ri­zed solu­ti­ons) for cloud compu­ting. Thanks to a unique solu­tion, up to 90 percent of the server waste heat is used for heating and hot water gene­ra­tion in office buildings.

INVEN CAPITAL is the venture capi­tal fund of the Czech energy provi­der ČEZ Group. With a market capi­ta­liza­tion of more than 10 billion euros, the listed ČEZ Group is one of the ten largest energy compa­nies in Europe.

Weil’s Frank­furt office alre­ady advi­sed INVEN CAPITAL on the first finan­cing round of Cloud&Heat Tech­no­lo­gies GmbH in May 2017. Weil is also active on behalf of ČEZ Group, a long-time client of the firm, most recently on the acqui­si­tion of Elevion Group from DPE Deut­sche Private Equity as well as on a number of the firm’s acqui­si­ti­ons in the German wind energy sector.
