Data Center Services and Colocation in Finland

Safe and Secure

Herman IT’s data center in Renforsin Ranta has a clear advantage in its secure electricity infrastructure, which was originally built for industrial purposes. As the electricity is available straight from the national grid, through a UPM-owned hub, the transportation cost of the electricity is on a very competitive level.


Multiple local hydroelectric power stations provide a significant supply of environmentally and economically attractive power, which is suitable for heavy industrial use and data centers designed for high-performance computing, without compromising sustainability.
