Hydro = Lowest carbon footprint
Our electricity is provided exclusively from local hydro electric power stations.
None of these emit any CO2 during electricity production meaning that the energy consumption of any equipment that you host in our
facility contributes absolutely zero to your carbon footprint giving significant carbon credit advantages.
Hydro power is a reliable, safe and renewable source of energy. The Lule River, which Hydro66 is located near to is Sweden’s most important river for hydro power generation.
Our datacentre construction process was also designed to be as green as possible. Recycled and natural products have been used throughout by our local contractors and
engineers in our next generation composite construction.
Significant reduction in fixed costs
In the past, bandwidth costs meant the only place to build datacentres was in built up urban areas – multistorey buildings with limited power, compromised cooling and extremely high build costs.
Now that bandwidth is cheap and plentiful we can locate in the most sensible place for a datacentre – close to abundant reliable power, in a cold climate, and with plenty of space available.
We can spread out – maximizing the opportunity for free air cooling and making space available for large deployments with incredible savings.
Whilst we are just 60km away from the Arctic Circle, we are not in the "middle of nowhere". Based on a former national military base our connectivity is unrivalled.
Multiple, diverse dark and lit fibre routes back to Stockholm and Helsinki and then from there to the major exchanges in London, Paris, Amsterdam and Germany mean
we are as well connected as some of the more traditional data centre locations.
