atNorth has announced that its third data centre in Iceland, ICE03, is now fully operational.
Following an 11-month build, the new facility will provide an initial capacity of 10 MW with potential expansion of up to 50 MW.
Located 250 km north of Reykjavík in the town of Akureyri, atNorth has said ICE03 will offer job opportunities to the local community, and allow businesses to tap into an infrastructure with renewable energy as they look to decarbonise and migrate IT operations cost-efficiently.
ICE03 brings atNorth’s total number of operational data centres to six, with one additional site in Finland, FIN02, currently under construction.
“We are delighted to be expanding our presence in the Nordics once again with a third site in Iceland” said Eyjólfur Magnús Kristinsson, CEO, atNorth.
“With six operational sites across three Nordic countries and another in development, our commitment to meet increasing demand in the industry through continued expansion is evidenced. Furthermore, our dedication to sustainable best practice supports our goal to become the service provider of choice for eco-friendly high performance infrastructure.”
