Microsoft to build data centre region in Finland

The US technology giant recently announced that they will build a new data centre region in Helsinki. In addition, Fortum and Microsoft have announced a unique collaboration project, whereby Fortum will capture the excess heat generated by the data centre region. Microsoft’s new data centre will use 100% emission-free electricity and Fortum will transfer the clean heat from the server cooling process to homes, services and business premises connected to its district heating system. Once the new data centre region’s waste heat capture is put into operation, about 60% of the area’s heating will be generated by climate-friendly waste heat.
