Landsvirkjun will supply the energy through its current power station network. The company has supported the growth of the data center industry in recent years in Iceland by offering energy from 100% renewable resources.
Hörður Arnarson, CEO of Landsvirkjun:
"Advania is a welcome addition to Landsvirkjun’s client base. The conditions in Iceland are ideal for data center operations and Landsvirkjun has in recent years actively promoted Iceland as a preferred location for data centers. The successful growth of Advania and other data centers in Iceland is based on favourable, long-term, secure energy contracts, a competitive environment and the cooperation of stakeholders within the industry in Iceland."
Gestur G. Gestsson, CEO of Advania:
"The scope of Advania’s operations, within the data center market, has grown tremendously in recent years and large-scale projects are in the pipeline in the coming months. Access to energy is a key factor in the operation of data centers and we are therefore greatly pleased by this agreement with Landsvirkjun. We believe That Landsvirkjun will strengthen our ability to service more global clients in the future. "
Advania is a leading Nordic IT company with operations in Iceland, Sweden and Norway. The company has around 1000 employees, working from 20 different stations of operation. Advania operates the Steinhella Data Center in Hafnarfjordur and the Fitjar Data Center in Reykjanesbær. The agreement will allow the company to further grow its data center operations and add to its client base.
Landsvirkjun generates 100% of its power from renewable resources. The company owns and operates 16 power stations, including 14 hydropower stations and two geothermal stations as well as two wind turbines. Landsvirkjun is currently constructing a geothermal power station at Þeistareykir in the northeast of Iceland and is also expanding its hydropower station network in Búrfell, in the south of Iceland.
The offering of favourable long-term power purchase agreements makes Iceland a competitive location to set up data centers and the stable, cold climate of the country is particularly suitable for data center operations. Redundant submarine fibre cable system provides the reliable connectivity required by demanding international data centers.
Landsvirkjun has actively promoted Iceland to the responsible parties for determining future locations of data centers. The Company's website contains information on the benefits of Iceland in this regard:
