REMOV, a Finnish data center developer, is set to embark on the construction of its 7.2MW data center building unit. The company claims that it will create a "carbon-negative data center ecosystem."
REMOV's data centers offer a total energy capacity of 150MW and will be powered entirely by renewable electricity. The company says its data centers will achieve extraordinary energy efficiency, with a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) rating of 1.1 and a Energy Flow Ratio (EFR) of 1.0.
REMOV says 90 percent of the heat generated at its campus will be captured and used in a district heating system run by the local utility Seinäjoki Energy. If all the heat energy of the 30-hectare site is captured, it could cover a large part of Seinäjoki's need for warmth. The company also claims this makes it a "carbon-negative data center ecosystem."
The company mentions other benefits as well. REMOV's data centers recorder zero power disruptions in the past two years. The infrastructure is also designed with modularity in mind, catering to the evolving needs of Cloud Service Providers. The campus also benefits from tripled data fiber connection backbones and direct connections to the Nordic Sea Cable, facilitating seamless access to APAC markets.
