In this report, Technavio covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the Data Center Construction Market in the Nordic Region for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from new data center construction (including modular data centers) and renovation of data centers.
“Many data centers in the Nordic region comply with green standards as they are powered by renewable energy sources and use free cooling techniques. These data centers are developed with a PUE of around 1.3 with the exception of modular facilities that have a PUE of less than 1.3,” said Rakesh Panda, one of Technavio’s lead industry analysts for data center research.
“DCIM manages the cooling system of a data center through remote software via sensors attached to the cooling systems. Vendors in the Nordic countries are focusing on DCIM systems for monitoring and controlling temperature in data centers remotely. DCIM also configures the system as per the external environment and has sensors in the cooling system that enables the customization of cooling units,” added Rakesh.

The new data center construction market in Denmark was valued at USD 780 million. The market is likely to grow significantly over the forecast period, boosted by the building of data center facilities by organizations like Apple and Interxion. Apple is constructing a green data center in Denmark, which will be powered by renewable energy sources.
There are around 20 data center providers in the country that are likely to expand their operational presence by constructing additional data centers. In addition, network connectivity in Denmark is better than other Nordic countries. Therefore, investments pertinent to data centers will grow based on the demand for cloud-based services.
The new data center construction market in Norway was valued at USD 820 million in 2015. Investments related to data centers in Norway are expected to increase over the forecast period due to the high availability of renewable energies. Other factors that will facilitate data center construction are low electricity cost, high international bandwidth, and suitable weather conditions.
The Lefdal Mine Datacenter, which will use seawater cooling systems and hydroelectric power sources, is among the major investments in the country. This data center will be among the largest data centers in Europe. Enterprises are also investing in green data centers; the Green Mountain data center in Stavanger is an example. In 2015, DigiPlex (a European data center provider) started a data center in the country, which is powered by renewable energy sources, with the possibility of future expansion.
Some of the organizations operating data centers in Sweden include Facebook, Volvo IT, Sungard Availability Services, and IKEA. Investments related to data centers in the country include the EcoDataCenter, which will be the first climate-positive data center in the world. This data center will comply with Tier 4 standards and is expected to have a PUE rating of 1.15. Also, it will be powered by renewable energy sources.
Global enterprises like Facebook are likely to expand their footprint in Sweden with the construction of new data centers over the forecast period. Also, the Swedish government is planning to reduce data center tax to encourage foreign investments.
Finland and Iceland
The new data center construction market in Finland and Iceland was valued at USD 470 million in 2015. Investments in data center construction are increasing in Finland and Iceland. In 2015, TeliaSonera, a telecommunications company invested around USD 160 million to build a data center powered by renewable energy sources in Finland. Also, Hetzner Online, a web hosting provider, and Google are making investments toward their future extension plans in Finland.
Data center investments in Iceland will also grow because the country generates 100% of its power from hydroelectric sources. In 2015, Verne Global, a data center provider, raised around USD 98 million in funding to develop a data center in Iceland.
