atNorth, a leading Nordic colocation, high-performance computing, and artificial intelligence service provider, today announced it joined the Finnish Data Center Association (FDCA).
The business acquired two data centers in Helsinki, Finland in January and has a third site, which will open in Q3 2024 with a capacity of 25 MW. atNorth is proud to continue to invest in Finland to meet the considerable demand for its services. By joining the FDCA, atNorth is able to share knowledge and contribute to the expansion of the digital economy in the country.
“We are delighted to join the Finnish Data Center Association”, says Fredrik Jansson, Chief Strategy & Marketing/Communications Officer at atNorth. “The ideal environmental conditions in Finland, along with the rest of the Nordic region have propelled the rapid expansion of the data center industry and, as energy prices continue to be sky high outside the Nordics, the demand for affordable and environmentally conscious infrastructure will undoubtedly increase.”
“atNorth has operated live data center sites in Finland for the last 10 months” continues Fredrik, “we recognize the need for larger mega sites in the country. We are building our FIN02 site in response to this and are actively seeking suitable land for additional ‘mega site’ campuses. As part of our commitment to further invest in the Finnish data center industry, we aim to ensure that demand is met with first-class infrastructure, and talent, with robust sustainability practices as a top priority”.
