Vattenfall and Cloud&Heat launch a data centre project

Vattenfall and Cloud&Heat Technologies have started a strategic partnership with a joint sustainable data centre pilot project to deliver fossil-free, reliable high-speed computing capacity. The data centre is equipped with high-end servers to cater for Artificial Intelligence and High-Performance Computing applications and designed to offer high performance, security, and direct utilization of excess heat in the adjacent district heating plant process for the highest sustainability.

The new data centre consists of two data centre containers located at Vattenfall’s biomass-fired district heating plant in Jordbro, south of Stockholm. Vattenfall provides the infrastructure and the secured site space, Cloud&Heat Technologies runs the operations, contributing together to a CO2-free computing process.

Given the increasing importance and demand of green IT, Cloud&Heat Technologies and Vattenfall aim at enhancing this project and providing more prospecting solutions to promote further sustainable data infrastructures.
