Data Centres  

Denmark is highly attractive for international datacentre operators. Invest in Denmark guides you to a fast identification of relevant sites, authorities and partners.

What makes Denmark ideal for data centres?

  • National power supply with 99,997% up-time (second most reliable power grid in Europe).
  • Low energy consumption for cooling  due to the cool climate (summer 16o C, winter 0.5o C).
  • Large low risk sites with N-1 132/150 kV power supply identified and available.
  • Low latency to Central Europe and the US (border to Germany, direct subsea fibre to the US).
  • Denmark is ranked number 1 in Europe by the World Bank in dealing with construction permits, covering both time, amount of procedures, cost and quality.
  • Green power supply from wind and biomass. During 2016, 65% of the general power supply in Denmark came from renewable sources. By 2023, there will only be two medium sized fossil fuel fired power plants left in Denmark.
  • The carbon footprint is further reduced by use of data centre waste heat for district heating. In Denmark, 64% of all homes are heated by district heating.

One of the companies that Invest in Denmark has already assisted is Apple, who are constructing a 166,000 square metres hyperscale data centre near Viborg, Denmark. Being pleased with the location and ease of doing business in Denmark, Apple has announced the construction of a second and similar data centre near Aabenraa, Denmark.

Furthermore, Invest in Denmark has assisted Facebook with the choice of Odense, Denmark for a 55,000 square metre data centre.
