Three new data centres for Stockholm

Advania Data Centers, Interxion and IP-Only have decided to build new data centers in Stockholm Data Park Kista with large-scale heat reuse. When operational, the data centers have the potential to heat more than 35 000 modern residential apartments in Stockholm.

Stockholm has established itself as the world-leader in large-scale heat reuse from major data centers, much thanks to a sustainable business model where data centers are paid for their excess heat. By preparing and offering suitable locations for data center investments, Stockholm Data Parks, which was launched to help the City become fossil fuel free by 2040, harvest excess heat generated by data centers.

“We have been working hard to inform actors on the advantages of being part of the circular economy that is possible in Stockholm through heat recovery. These three announcements are important to the City and a proof that the concept works and that Stockholm is an attractive place to locate,” says Tora Holm,Business Development Manager at Invest Stockholm.

“With Interxion expanding and IP-Only and Advania Data Centers choosing to enter Stockholm Data Parks to actively engage in heat recovery, this announcement sets a new standard for the data center industry. There is an increasing realization that end-users are expecting data centers to offer sustainable solutions. With our willingness to pay for excess heat, locating in Stockholm is not only more profitable, it also provides a competitive edge for these data centers in responding to customer demands for climate-neutral computing,” says Erik Rylander, Head of Stockholm Data Parks at Stockholm Exergi.

Stockholm Data Parks recently added a new site in Brista, close to Stockholm's international airport Arlanda. From the start, 220 000 square meters are available for data center investments with heat recovery. Work is ongoing to extend the land area with another 400 000 square meters.
