AtNorth, a major supplier of colocation, high-performance computing, and artificial intelligence services in the Nordic region, has announced plans to expand its data center footprint into Denmark by opening a new data center campus in Ballerup, just outside Copenhagen. The company made this announcement last week, noting that the first phase will go live in the last quarter of 2024 after undergoing construction for twelve months. 

AtNorth’s CEO, Eyjólfur Magnús Kristinsson said, “Our data center locations are very carefully selected in order to adhere to our stringent requirements for scalability and energy efficiency. We are delighted to invest in Denmark’s data center market and expand our facilities into the country at a time when the demand for high performance digital infrastructure is continually increasing.”

The company noted that this new location dubbed DEN01 will be AtNorth’s ninth data center and will mark its presence in five Nordic nations. It is also expected to benefit from Denmark's mild climate and will be positioned next to the waste and energy firm Vestforbraending, which now provides district heating to the equivalent of 70,000 homes.
