Less than a year after setting up a first data center in Sweden, Facebook now reveals plans of starting construction of a second data center shortly.
“Together with our friends in Luleå we will continue working on Facebook’s mission; to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected.”
Global Bitcoin mining equipment company KnC Miner is currently in full progress setting up a
10 MW datacenter in Boden. The decision to settle in the far north of Sweden was based on the great conditions that the location provides for hosting businesses. The Node Pole region is well-renowned for its access to an abundance of stable and competitively priced electricity from renewable energy.
Leif Johansson, a profile within Swedish industry was impressed at his recent visit to the Facebook datacenter in Luleå and The Node Pole. He is convinced that Sweden will continue to have a leading position in international IT-industry and that Sweden is strong in the international playing field.
