Loopia, one of the largest players within web hosting services in the Nordics, has decided to move their systems operations to EcoDataCenter’s facility in Falun, Sweden. The data center in Falun is built entirely out of wood and powered 100% by renewable energy sources.
EcoDataCenter launched its “carbon dioxide positive” data center in 2018 and has a wide range of services that combine security and flexibility with a high level of sustainability from several aspects.
The surplus heat generated by the wooden data center is utilized by municipally owned Falu Energi & Vatten, either directly for heating or as an important ingredient in the manufacturing of biofuel. This would make it a unique solution ensuring the data center’s sustainable standards. In addition to this, the facility has an extremely high level of physical and technical safety, according to the company itself.
“We are proud of the trust that we have gained and look forward to supporting Loopia in their continued delivery of high-quality services to their customers,” said Magnus Angermund, CMO at EcoDataCenter. “Loopia’s large customer base places high demands on operational reliability and scalability, which together with their high sustainability goals suits us extremely well.”
“We are Sweden’s largest and fastest growing company in domain and web hosting services. Therefore, it is important that we make positive changes,” said Hannah Johnsson Bittmann, Head of Sweden at Loopia. “Given our size, our chance to influence others is greater than our competitors. Since sustainability concerns us all in some aspect, we are now at the forefront of setting a new industry standard where the goal is to help our customers to greener IT.”
“We have the capacity to meet Loopia’s high demands on safety, sustainability and accessibility,” added Dan Andersson, operations manager for EcoDataCenter’s data center in Falun. “This is a big step for Loopia, and we hope that more companies follow their good example of ensuring climate-safe IT-services.”
