Water-cooling removes the need for air plenum and allows for a very compact building design. Minimum room heights, defined by the required network space rather than the air volume, means less building volume and less construction cost. The technology also makes it possible to stack unlimited levels of white space above each other.

The compactness of the solution makes it possible to increase the number of stories of the data centers. The construction is developed out of prefabricated elements with steel and precast, the steel being almost fully recyclable at the end of its lifetime.

This leads to construction costs approximately 30% below conventional approaches.

Buying the power directly from the producer will further add to the cost effectiveness. Considering that Northern Sweden’s electricity price is among the lowest in the EU, this means extra cost effective data storage for clients.
