Data centers – powered by eco-friendly renewable energy in the Nordic countries
We are taking part in the development of a sustainable Data Center that leaves minimum footprint, from construction to delivering a clean cloud solution.
Our concept provides Enterprise’s and Hyperscale companies a “one stop shop” for Data Center and Wind power. We can provide this as a service, or as a General Contractor. YIT is aiming to be the leading construction company of Data Center in the Nordics.
The growth on cloud services that drives the demand for Data Center need to transform to more sustainable solutions. At YIT we believe this in best made in three steps.
- Clean new wind power
- A new green and effective Data Center
- Reuse of the waste heat
More about THE CONCEPT
Norway, Sweden and Finland are superb locations to build larger datacenters to many reasons:
- Cold climate
The cold northern climate helps manage the significant cooling requirements of data centers.
- Access to renewable energy
There are plenty of renewable energy sources available, including wind power, hydropower, bioenergy and geothermal heat. Northern power grids are reliable and modern, with an extremely low incidence of disruptions in electricity distribution. The cost of energy is low and electricity markets are functional and competitive.
- World class connectivity
The region has excellent connectivity and in the coming years, Northern Europe’s connections to Asia will further reduce the latency to that region.
- Politically stable
The political environment is stable and well regulated
