DATA CENTER SITES IN BODEN


BODEN BUSINESS AGENCY

“We searched all over the world for a suitable place to build the first of many of our own mega datacenters, and to find the best location lying right here in our home country is fantastic. Our highly advanced technology consumes a lot of energy, so for us it was imminent to find a production site with access to renewable yet stable and safe energy. We have had an incredible amount of support from The Node Pole representatives, local companies and the government here in Boden.�

Due to our history, Boden offers extraordinary conditions with abundance of renewable electric power, attractive land and suitable facilities. It all started during the late 17th century with a poor farmer, Per Andersson, from the north part of the municipality. During a harsh winter one of his children starved to death and he left his family for the Lappish wilderness. His goal was to trade flour for reindeers. In the small settlement Illuvare he met a Sami guy that traded his goods and left him a couple of stones that he brought home. He gave them to the authorities and almost 50 years later his sons were honored for their father’s discovery – the iron ore of Malmberget. This ore has the highest density in the world and are still used to produce world class high carbon steel around the world.    Due to the development of the orefield, the railway through Sweden and between Luleå and Narvik was built, in the beginning of 20th century. In March 1888 the first ore train arrived to Lulea from Malmberget. The train which was carrying 1,000 tons of iron ore was the start

Our communities and industries doesn’t stop even when the weather is at it’s most extreme.

C of a major industry in Swedish Lapland. Due to the story, March 1888 was one of the coldest March months in Swedish history. Consider that, we still got it to work, and since that day Swedish Lapland daily have been mining and transporting iron ore and produced and transported steel in more extreme weather than that.    Boden became the hub of logistics of the railway. The Swedish Steele company (SSAB), the hydropower development and the military defense strategies were all built up around this huge natural asset. To protect it, Boden fortress was built during the beginning of 20th century.    During the 1990s, the global political scene changed and the military strategy with it. Instead of a military defense built for handling the in-between position of the cold war Sweden became an international partner to the United nation and other global interventions.    The infrastructure of power, communications and suitable facilities has been transferred into civilian use with completely different goals and visions. Today Boden can offer extra ordinary conditions for data centers.

Unique stability and abundance of power Boden has a unique position of power supply – redundant, sustainable and free from interruption. Just outside of Boden is one of the national power grid substations, and one of the points where Swedens national grid connects to the Nordic grid. The national grid substation is located just 6 km from the Helicopter Airbase Area. Numerous feeders of the regional grid passes close to the site.    Luleå River produces annually approximately 4300 MW where approximately 2600 MW is exported from the region. This creates an unique abundance of power. The power supply offers great sustainability through the 100% renewable hydro power.    During the last 10 years the regional grid of Norrbotten has had 2 interruptions – with a total length of 9 hours and 9 minutes. No interferences for customers were noted. The Regional Power grid has 99.99% uptime on each feeder. Our new +200MW substation on the Helicopter Airbase site add another dimension to power relience. The calculated risk of lost feed of power is almost nonexistent.    Alternative back-up power up to 10MW could be generated from locally produced biogas. External back-up power supply through generators may not be necessary.

Perfect climate for big data Boden is situated in the center of Swedish Lapland, only 60 km south of the Arctic Circle. Boden is a part of the Node Pole; one of the most geologically, politically and socially stable areas in the world. Swedish Lapland is known for its cold climate and vast natural resources. While others see difficulties with our climate, we have managed to turn it to our advantage. The Swedish Lapland has the lowest temperatures in Sweden during the winter. This means that we can offer natural and cost effective cooling, through both air and water. The average temperature in Boden is 1.3 ° C (34.3 ° F) and the Lule river has an average temperature of 6.2 ° C (43.1 ° F). The Lule river’s huge and natural forces provides us with large-scale, environmentally friendly hydropower.    Sweden is a safe place to live in. We have been in state of peace since 1814. Which is a big reason why we have political and social stability here.

The average temperature in Boden is 1,3 °C (34.3 °F).

URBAN MINING - REFINING THE WASTE Boden work with Urban Mining since 1995. Wich means that raw materials are extracted from waste. Citizens of Boden sorts their waste, but instead of ending up at the dump, a circular economy around the waste has been built up.    It means reusing and recycling waste whenever possible. Instead of throwing fully functioning gadgets, they are sold second-hand and recycled. By sorting packaging paper, glass, plastic and metal; instead of being thrown on the dump, gets new life. Burnable garbage is burned and turned into power and heat to households and industries food waste along with what is flushed down the toilet becomes biogas that powers vehicles and datacenters. The biogas production also creates a biproduct used as a bio-fertilizer in agriculture. Working with Urban Mining takes care of all waste, which does good for the ecology at the same time as it creates new business opportunities and jobs.

Boden biogas plant has a production rate equivalent to 1MW of gas per hour.

CARBON FREE FOOTPRINTS - NEXT GEN OF DATA CENTER SITES With a number of accomplished datacenter builds and establishments, the local society of entrepreneurs and suppliers have earned a lot of experience. The experience and tight cooperation with the customers at site, combined with their unique competence in actually building houses and constructions for our climate, is a winning concept for new establishments.    For over one hundred years the people in the region have striven to find ways of getting things to work in both +30 and -45 degrees. Anyone, anywhere can make it in theory, but these guys and girls make it in realty. With national interest in the base industry, such as mining, steel and forestry, they have created one of the most reliable power grids in the world – fed by ultra-green hydropower.    This data center competence, the reliable power supply, the sustainable visions of the municipality and the academic sphere of Luleå University of Technology makes it a strong team for anyone who likes to be in pole position for the next generations of data center builds. The demands of sustainability will just increase and there is probably nowhere else one can get as close to carbon free footprints as in Boden. Welcome to join the next generation of data center sites today.
