atNorth, and others, Shortlisted for Data Centre of the Year

atNorth, Schneider Electric and Green Mountain are among some of the data centre companies shortlisted for industry awards, to be announced in May 2024

Leading Nordic AI and colocation service provider atNorth has been shortlisted for an award at the Electrical Review & Data Centre Review Awards.

The company has been nominated for both the Data Centre of the Year and Colocation Provider of the Year categories. Also nominated are the likes of Schneider Electric, Digital Realty and Green Mountain, with other awards ranging from Data Centre Project of the Year, Hardware Solution (Product) of the Year and Sustainable Project of the Year.

This is welcome news for atNorth, having spent the past year working to expand its global data centre portfolio to support its increased demand. The company has also recently been recognised for its advances in sustainable data centre services.

Digitally advancing the data centre

The Electrical Review and Data Centre Review Excellence Awards 2024 seeks to recognise outstanding achievements within the electrical and data centre industries. It champions those that are shaping the sector, whether that be company or individual, that are displaying forward-thinking design and implementation strategies. 

Additionally, the awards will also honour those that uplift the highest environmental, safety and energy efficiency standards.

For any company being recognised in these awards, it highlights a commitment towards decarbonisation efforts. Sustainable data centres are ideal for customers looking to reduce CO2 output and rising energy costs, but also seek to balance this with a continued desire to digitally develop.

“As the relationship between increased digitalisation and the impact on the environment becomes more well-known, businesses are increasingly looking for more sustainable data centres,” says Fredrik Jansson, Chief Strategy & Marketing Communication Officer at atNorth. “Choosing a data centre infrastructure partner is a big decision and we are proud to be recognised for both our sustainability prowess and our commitment to customer service and long-term client relationships.”

atNorth in particular has experienced plenty of expansion efforts in recent months as it continues to expand with new sites in Finland and Denmark. Currently, the business is seeking to scale to meet increasing customer needs for its services, in addition to their demands for more sustainable operations.

In order to harness these carbon-friendly solutions to their full potential, atNorth has been considering how to best utilise rapidly-advancing technologies like AI. The company is building a pan-Nordic data centre platform to best achieve this, as it aims to ensure that the future of technology is sustainable.

In addition to these latest nominations, atNorth has been the recipient of other accolades already this year, having been recognised at the Sustainability in Tech Awards.
