Reykjavík, Iceland – September 6th, 2023 – atNorth, a Nordic colocation, high-performance computing, and artificial intelligence service provider, today announced that its Sweden data center is on the shortlist for the ‘Physical Technology of the Year – Heating and Cooling’ category at the 2023 Energy Awards.

atNorth’s SWE01 data center launched in 2022 and is specifically designed for high-density workloads, such as advanced calculations for AI, simulations, and risk analysis. It is one of the world’s first +10mW data centers with a primary cooling system designed for heat recovery. This enables 85 percent of the electricity used in the DC to be captured and passed on as heat to the district heating system. This residual heat can heat up to 20,000 homes.

The entry showcased atNorth’s strategic alliance with CoolIT, provider of direct liquid cooling solutions. Its cooling system further enhanced the existing infrastructure cooling process for atNorth’s high-density servers, significantly improving overall data center efficiency.

atNorth now operates six Nordic data centers, following the launch of its third site in Iceland, ICE03, and with a seventh site due to open in Finland in 2024. The business is committed to building best in class data centers to meet the continued demand for energy efficient, data-intensive computing.

The Energy Awards aim to celebrate the energy industry’s innovations and achievements in best practice, business excellence and industry collaboration. For more information, visit
