The data center industry is experiencing tremendous growth in Europe and the Nordics. Denmark especially has the highest density of hyperscale campuses in Scandinavia, and the new subsea cable linking the U.S directly to Denmark will provide more opportunities for the colocation segment to flourish.

With large scale campuses set to break data center delivery models, the challenges facing this industry are complex. Maintaining talent, minimizing supply chain disruption, whilst integrating sustainable solutions are key to success during the design and build phase of modern data centers.

Meeting these challenges requires a fully integrated engineering and construction approach from the very early stages, to future-proof data center capabilities.

Join this network meeting and find out about the latest progress from some of the world’s largest and innovative data center projects being built in Denmark, and how the Danish ecosystem is responding to their specific needs. Furthermore, this meet-up will provide an overview of the latest emerging data center technologies from across the globe.
