EcoDataCenter to acquire two data centre hubs in Stockholm


EcoDataCenter said it will be established in Stockholm through the acquisition of two data centre hubs in the region.

The company has now established a strong position in the Swedish capital, with accessible data centre services within the Stockholm area.

EcoDataCenter has three data centre sites, which gives its customers opportunities to tailor the services to suit their individual needs.

“The two facilities in Stockholm give us completely new opportunities when it comes to assisting companies to convert to greener digitisation,” said Magnus Angermund, Chief Marketing Officer at EcoDataCenter.

“Our customers can choose to place their latency demanding equipment in Stockholm and use our data centre 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.”

The company’s facility in Falun is the world's first climate-positive data centre. The sites in Piteå offer data centre operation in northern Sweden, while the two new centres in Stockholm enable services requiring the least possible latency; such as smart city applications, IoT, 5G, etc.

”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 centres.

“Our customers can now more easily take the step towards increased sustainability by sharing the equipment between Stockholm and our climate-positive data centre in Falun or our centres in Norrland.”
