Iceland data centre services provider expands into Finland

Data centre services provider Borealis Data Center has acquired the Kajaani Data Center in Finland to extend its service reach.

The Iceland-headquartered firm said the deal signifies a “major step forward” in enhancing its high-performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities.

"The Kajaani Campus has been designed to the highest standards and is backed by a robust supply of renewable energy and a secure infrastructure,” said Björn Brynjúlfsson, CEO and co-founder of Borealis Data Center. “Like Borealis Data Center‘s three locations in Iceland, Kajaani benefits from Finland‘s cool climate which serves as an ideal setting for data centre efficiency.

“This facility marks a significant enhancement to Borealis's portfolio, enriching our customer offering. We look forward to welcoming new customers and partners to our new data centre."

The Kajaani Data Center, located in the Renforsin Ranta business area, uses an old paper mill's infrastructure for eco-friendly operations. The planned HPC/AI expansion of the data centre aligns with this legacy, furthering Borealis's commitment to minimal environmental impact. The facility is 100% powered by renewable energy, through hydro and wind.
