AtNorth is expanding into Denmark, with a new data center campus outside Copenhagen.
The company this week announced plans for a new campus – known as DEN01 – in Ballerup, Greater Copenhagen.
The first phase will go live in Q4 2024 following a 12-month build. It will be the company’s ninth data center in total.
“Our data center locations are very carefully selected in order to adhere to our stringent requirements for scalability and energy efficiency,” said atNorth’s CEO, Eyjólfur Magnús Kristinsson.
“We are delighted to invest in Denmark’s data center market and expand our facilities into the country at a time when the demand for high performance digital infrastructure is continually increasing.”
The company said the site will be Tier III-quality and be ISO27001 and ISO14001 compliant. AtNorth said the facility is located near waste and energy company Vestforbraending’s district heating network, which will be able to utilize waste heat from the data center.
“We work purposefully and continuously to utilize waste heat from organizations such as data centers and integrate them into our district heating network,” said Steen Neuchs Vedel, CEO of Vestforbaending. “We are happy to be part of this project and look forward to working with atNorth to efficiently utilize waste heat from their new site to heat local homes.”
AtNorth is a pan-Nordic data center provider specializing in colocation and high-performance computing (HPC). The company currently has six data centers across Sweden, Iceland, and Finland, with another Finnish site currently under construction. The company recently acquired Swedish High-Performance Computing (HPC) services provider Gompute, taking over a data center in Gothenburg with a capacity potential of 10MW.
