EcoDataCenter acquires two facilities to establish Stockholm presence

As of October 1st, leading global 'green' data center owner and operator EcoDataCenter will be established in Stockholm, through the acquisition of two of the region's most modern and energy-efficient data center facilities.

EcoDataCenter, which is known for its climate-positive data centers in Falun, central Sweden, now also establishes a strong position in the Swedish capital Stockholm by acquiring two of the region's most sustainable and modern data center facilities. EcoDataCenter thus complements its offer with accessible and secure data center services within the Stockholm area.


"The two facilities in Stockholm give us completely new opportunities when it comes to assisting companies to convert to a greener digitization," said Magnus Angermund, Chief Marketing Officer at EcoDataCenter. "Our customers can choose to place their latency demanding equipment in Stockholm and use our data center in Falun for bigger data volumes. This might be the springboard that facilitates the customer's first step towards increased sustainability within IT since the level of sustainability we offer in Falun simply cannot be achieved in Stockholm."

"In addition, we all have a responsibility to relieve the electricity networks in the Stockholm region due to the electricity shortage that prevails. This will become even more noticeable in the transition to a more modern and sustainable society."

EcoDataCenter has three data center sites, each with a specific focus, which gives customers great opportunities to tailor the services to suite their individual needs. The data center in Falun is the world's first climate-positive data center, with extremely high levels of capacity and security. The sites in Piteå offer data center operation in northern Sweden, which is a well-known region for data centers, while the two new centers in Stockholm enable services requiring the least possible latency; such as smart city applications, IoT, 5G, etc. The Stockholm sites also make it easier for companies and authorities within the region that strive to improve sustainability when it comes to IT.

"This is an important milestone in the development of EcoDataCenter, and we are proud to establish ourselves in Stockholm in this way," said Lars Schedin, CEO of EcoDataCenter. "By continuing operations in existing facilities, we can immediately start offering our services. The establishment fits in well with our strategy and goal of becoming the largest provider in sustainable data centers. Our customers can now more easily take the step towards increased sustainability by sharing the equipment between Stockholm and our climate-positive data center in Falun or our centers in Norrland."
