atNorth to Build a New 15MW Data Centre Campus in Helsinki

atNorth, the leading pan-Nordic colocation, high-performance computing, and artificial intelligence service provider, has agreed to purchase an additional site in Finland which will be converted into a third data center for the company. This represents a crucial achievement in the company's effort to expand and maintain its position as a leader in data center solutions throughout the Nordic region.




Location

The site, which was purchased from Tallberg Group, is located in Sinimaentie, Espoo. Initially, the data center will have a capacity of 15 MW, and it will be operational by Q3 2024. However, the terms of the acquisition are not shared.

Features of the new data center

The facility will consist of heat reuse systems that recycle the residual heat generated by the data center to heat local housing.

Eyjolfur Magnus Kristinsson, CEO of atNorth, "We are thrilled to be expanding our presence in the Nordics with a third site in Finland. With five operational sites across three Nordic countries and two more in development, this acquisition is a critical step in future-proofing our offering and supports our goal to continue to be the service provider of choice in the region."
