Exciting news out of the Nordics! Ficolo, which operates three sustainable-powered data centers in Finland, has announced it will now operate under the Verne Global brand. Verne Global is a data solutions provider for high-intensity computing across Northern Europe.
Meeting the Growing Need for Sustainable Data Centers
Ficolo, the first hyperscale-level colocation company in the Nordic region, brings 23 MW of available data center capacity to the Verne Global platform, with the potential to expand to 90 MW across its three sites in Helsinki (‘The Air’), Pori (‘The Rock’) and Tampere (‘The Deck’). All three Ficolo facilities are powered by 100%-sustainable energy sources – including Ficolo’s own solar power generation facility – and distribute surplus heat to district heating networks.
“Working together under one brand will benefit Ficolo’s many international and domestic customers as they can make use of the new platform’s broader portfolio of services offered in Iceland and London. And of course, Verne Global customers can now tap into Ficolo’s offering,” said Seppo Ihalainen, CEO and co-founder of Ficolo.
In addition to Ficolo’s three data centers, Verne Global operates sustainable-powered facilities in Iceland and London, and this powerful partnership is set to provide hyperscalers and enterprises with expanded connectivity and efficient, innovative digital solutions across Northern Europe.
“Ficolo’s three campuses add significant capacity to the joint Verne Global data center platform; together – and with D9’s backing – we are in a strong position to satisfy growing demand for sustainable and predictably priced data center services, including from the hyperscalers,” said Dominic Ward, CEO, Verne Global.
Ensuring a Sustainable Path Forward Under the Digital 9 Umbrella
Both Ficolo and Verne Global are part of Triple Point’s Digital 9 Infrastructure plc (D9) portfolio of critical digital infrastructure assets. With a strong focus on investments that increase connectivity globally and improve the sustainability of digital infrastructure, D9 acquired Ficolo last July. Through this strategic acquisition backed by D9, Ficolo and Verne Global will join forces to continue to focus on mitigating the effects of climate change across the data center industry to ensure a greener future for the next generation.
