Sustainable Data Center Expansion for EcoDataCenter & Vertiv

Sustainable data centre expansion with EcoDataCenter and Vertiv
Vertiv partners with EcoDataCenter for high-efficiency chilled water cooling solutions in Swedish data centre expansion

Vertiv has entered into a contract with Swedish data centre company EcoDataCenter, to provide high-efficiency chilled water cooling solutions for its new facilities being built in Falun, Sweden.

Chilled water cooling systems manage heat generated by servers, by circulating the water through a network of pipes which absorb heat. This helps to maintain optimal operating temperatures and prevent overheating, as discussed in our Top 10: 'Coolest' Cooling Companies

EcoDataCenter partners with Vertiv for sustainable data centre expansion

EcoDataCenter was founded in 2014, with a vision to combine Swedish design and world-leading technological innovation, to meet very high user requirements and process large amounts of data. The company has been successful in its deployment of state-of-the-art data centres and is continuing its trajectory to expand its operations and support rising demand for AI and high performance computing. EcoDataCenter runs multiple data centre facilities across four Swedish sites.

Vertiv is based in Columbus, Ohio and was founded in 1946 as a refrigerators company. Now, the company is a leader in hardware, software and analytics and is dedicated to solving the most important challenges facing today’s data centres, with a portfolio of power, cooling and IT infrastructure solutions. Vertiv now works with businesses across more than 130 countries.

EcoDataCenter has a firm dedication to sustainability, which is well aligned with Vertiv's ambition for efficient infrastructure and environmental stewardship. 

EcoDataCenter’s two new data centre facilities in Falun will be commissioned at the start of 2025 and will include an installation of 96 Vertiv™ Liebert® PCW chilled water cooling units, for a total capacity of around 12 MW. 

These floor-mounted systems are customised according to customer specifications. They feature:
  • Optimised coils
  • Aerodynamic design of the internal components
  • Patented elements, allowing a reduction of energy consumption
  • Enhanced cooling efficiency
  • Effective waste heat reuse.

"We selected Vertiv’s cooling systems due to their energy-efficient, reliable solutions, exceptional expertise and service,” said Mikael Svanfeldt, CTO at EcoDataCenter. “Vertiv is quick to translate technological advances into products, and its innovations integrate seamlessly with our deployments." 

"This framework agreement with EcoDataCenter is a feather in the cap for Vertiv in the Swedish market,” added Victor Elm, Strategic Segment and Partners Director, Colocation and Hyperscale for Northern Europe at Vertiv. “EcoDataCenter and Vertiv have a history of working together to apply innovative, efficient, and reliable solutions to support EcoDataCenter's sustainability goals. This knowledge sharing helps both companies to anticipate future needs,"
