Poll that Leads Somewhere

The Node Pole Alliance – an active international network of over 80 knowledge partners coming together to build the data centres of the future – has been joined by EcoCooling.

The Node Pole region encompasses three municipalities in the North of Sweden, just by the Arctic Circle and has reportedly the potential to become a ‘global hub for data traffic’.

This has been put down to its reliable power infrastructure, the supply of low cost renewable hydroelectric energy and low air temperatures ideal for natural cooling.

The Alliance members are companies from the technology and construction sectors that combine their knowledge and experience to build world-class data centres.

“We are very proud to have been able to join the Node Pole Alliance,” stated Alan Beresford, MD, EcoCooling. “The direct-air evaporative cooling systems we have developed are suitable for the climate in the Node Pole region and make the most of the resources available.”

By joining the Node Pole Alliance EcoCooling will work alongside some of the most well known companies in the sector, such as Hydro66, Vattenfall, Facebook, KnC Miner and ABB.
