Software giant SAP secures land in Sweden for future datacenter build


SAP has signed a land allocation agreement of 60,000 m2 with the municipality of Trollhättan in western Sweden. The agreement is further proof of Sweden's attractiveness as a home for the growing datacenter industry.

SAP secures the land with an intention to build a datacenter. The choice of Trollhättan in Sweden guarantees future sustainable datacenter operations for SAP. With Sweden's fossil free electricity production, robust electricity grids and excellent business climate, Sweden has emerged as a strong and sustainable choice in recent years. This fits well with SAP's intention to be climate neutral by 2025.

In this project Node Pole has worked closely with both SAP and Trollhättan municipality to get the investment to Trollhättan - the optimal site for SAP.

“The collaboration with Node Pole works very well and has simplified and made the deal with SAP possible. The experience and professionalism that Node Pole delivers has been invaluable, and I look forward to the continued work", says Helena Kortered Manager Business Relations at Trollhättan municipality.

For Sweden, this is another green deal that proves the many benefits that Sweden has to offer. The Nordic region is developing into the next major datacenter hub in Europe, a real sustainability gain for the entire EU.

“Swedish electricity production based on hydropower is an excellent opportunity for the datacenter industry to grow sustainably in Sweden. The municipality of Trollhättan has worked exemplary in creating the right conditions for establishments, and the SAP decision is further proof of Sweden's strong ability to attract the large global companies to invest in Sweden”, says Patrik Öhlund CEO Node Pole.

Trollhättan municipality has a long industrial tradition with electricity-intensive industries, hydropower production and broad engineering expertise. The municipality is attractive for investors in a national and international perspective through geographical proximity, access to infrastructure, competence and competence centers.
