Magdalena Andersson, Finance Minister of Sweden, opens ultra-green and ultra-efficient hosting adjacent to Facebook’s data centre in northern Sweden.

Hydro66 Svenska AB, based in London UK, today announces the unveiling of a 1000 square meter 3.2MW specialist data centre facility in Boden, Sweden, which dramatically reduces the cost model for secure enterprise colocation hosting with true ultra-green credentials designed in.

The new colocation facility utilises the abundance of renewable power from the river, Lule älv, and is located beside a new 120MW substation for maximum power availability.

The new data centre is situated next to the river, Lule älv with an installed effect of 4300 MW    
green hydropower, which is twice the amount of the Hoover Dam in Colorado, USA.      

The facility is fed directly from the nearby 78 MW Boden hydropower station – located only 500        
metres away.

Green power is delivered with the combination of minimum impact on the environment and              
extreme stability – the regional power grid has not had a power outage since 1979.

Low average ambient temperatures in the region allows ultra-efficient free-air cooling all year            
round without compressors or chemicals

The data centre is located on 2 diverse physical fibre routes with hundreds of terabits capacity        
and multiple telecom providers available on demand

These factors, combined with Swedish energy being the lowest cost in Europe, enables the new data centre to offer significant cost and operational advantages when compared to legacy data centres.
