Loopia, one of the greatest players within Web hosting services in the Nordic countries has decided to move their system operations to EcoDataCenterPlant in Falun, Sweden. The Falun data center is made entirely of wood and is 100% renewable energy sources.
EcoDataCenter opened its “carbon dioxide positive” data center in 2018 and has a wide range of services that combine security and flexibility with a high degree of sustainability from various points of view.
The surplus heat generated by the data center from wood is used by Falu Energi & Vatten in municipal hands either directly for heating or as an important component in the production of biofuel. This would make it a unique solution that ensures the sustainable standards of the data center. In addition, according to the company, the facility has an extremely high level of physical and technical security.
“With sustainability affecting us all in some ways, we are now at the forefront of setting a new industry standard about helping our customers IT be greener,” said Hannah Johnsson Bittmann, Head of Sweden at web hosting company Loopia .
“We are proud of the trust we have gained and look forward to helping Loopia continue to deliver quality service to our customers,” he said Magnus Angermund, CMO and EcoDataCenter. “Loopia’s large customer base places high demands on operational reliability and scalability, which, together with its high sustainability goals, suits us very well.”
“We are Sweden’s largest and fastest growing domain and web hosting company. So it is important that we make positive changes, ”he said Hannah Johnsson Bittmann, Head of Sweden at Loopia. “Given our size, our chance to influence others is greater than that of our competitors. With sustainability affecting us all in some ways, we are now at the forefront of setting a new industry standard that aims to help our customers use IT more environmentally friendly. “
“We are able to meet Loopia’s stringent requirements for safety, sustainability and accessibility,” he added Dan Andersson, operations manager for EcoDataCenter’s Falun data center. “This is a big step for Loopia, and we hope that more companies will follow their example of ensuring climate-proof IT services.”
