“The scale of investment is typically 100-200 million euros during the first 5-7 years,” Joensivu said.
 
The data centre operator Hetzner Online in a statement said the decision to build in Tuusula was influenced by, among other things, the region’s high-speed fibre optic network and good transportation connections as well as the 150,000 square metre plot of land which was of sufficient size. The plot is valued at 4.9 million euros.
 
The company surveyed more than 20 possible locations in Finland for the centre.
 
The decision to build the centre in Finland was based on, among other things, Finland’s competitive energy costs and securities of energy supply.
 
“One of the main reasons to invest in a data centre in Finland was the price of energy, which is significantly lower than in Germany,” said the company’s founder and CEO Martin Hetzner in a statement.
 
According to the company, construction begins next spring. The intention to invest in a data centre in Finland was announced in April, but the exact location of the centre was not divulged.
 
There are already a number of data centres from international companies operating in Finland. The best known are the Google and Microsoft centres, as well as the Yandex centre in Mänsälä.
