The company said it will be expanding the current ICE02 Mjölnir data center by 10 percent and adding 1,250 sqm (13,400 sq ft) of floorspace and 4MW of power.

The building uses timber and aluminum construction, utilizes hydroelectric and geothermal power, and Direct Free Air cooling systems.

atNorth was formed as Advania in 2012 from three components: Skyrr, a public sector IT specialist in Iceland; Kerfi, a Swedish outfit with roots in a Nokia spinoff called Datapoint, and Hands from Norway. The company has another data center just outside Reykjavík in Hafnarfjörðu as well as a campus in Stockholm, Sweden.
