The Nordics also bring universal fiber coverage and rapid connections to Germany, Amsterdam, Russia and the Far East.
The ultra-low price of green electricity and the unique utility redundancy at the site in Boden has generated considerable interest, especially from companies in Western Europe that have major challenges with high electricity prices and delivering compute at scale.
