Reykjavik, Iceland – July 12th 2023 - atNorth, a leading Nordic colocation, high-performance computing, and artificial intelligence service provider has today announced a group income of SEK 560 million (EUR 53 million) as it publishes its 2022 annual accounts. This figure represents a 44% increase in revenue from 2021 and further growth is expected in the coming years.
atNorth currently operates six data centers, in Iceland, Sweden and Finland, and is planning further state of the art sites in the coming years. The company’s growth calls for extensive investment and atNorth has secured access to capital for this purpose. The investment for the year 2022 amounted to about SEK 220 million (EUR 20m), and it is already evident that the 2023 level of investment will be significantly higher.
Eyjólfur Magnús Kristinsson, CEO of atNorth, thanks the staff for the company’s good results. “In recent years, we have built an enormous wealth of knowledge. Our customers value our services, and it is core to atNorth’s good reputation”, says Eyjólfur Magnús. He also commends the support of the company’s powerful sponsor, Partners Group, that acquired the majority of the company’s shares at the beginning of 2022.
As the global trend of digital transformation continues, as well as the increase in the use of AI and other big data projects, businesses are becoming increasing reliant on supercomputers to perform increasingly complex calculations. This demand is fuelling the need for high performance data center and supercomputing services which have increased exponentially in recent years.
atNorth continues to promote the Nordic region as a superlative location for investment in digital infrastructure – recently winning the The Tech Capital Location Award for Iceland as a result of its advantageous climate, favourable business environment and cutting-edge infrastructure.
