We are thrilled to announce that Conapto has been shortlisted for the prestigious Energy Impact Award at the DataCenterDynamics (DCD) Awards 2023. The nomination is based on the development of a heat reuse system, together with Coromatic, for the Stockholm 3 North data center.
Conapto’s shortlisting is a testament to the groundbreaking nature and results of the Heat Reuse project. The project and our nomination had not been possible without the involvement and expertise from Coromatic, says Håkan Björklund, CEO at Conapto.
The DCD Awards, renowned for recognizing excellence in data center projects, people, and teams, received a record number of entries this year across 17 diverse categories. The project’s focus on heat reuse aligns with the industry’s increasing commitment to sustainability. By repurposing excess heat generated by the data center, Conapto not only demonstrates environmental responsibility but also sets a benchmark for others to follow. This commitment to innovation and efficiency stands out in a category that seeks to recognize the most forward-thinking approaches to energy management, and is also a significant nod to Conapto’s commitment to sustainable data center solutions.
Thomas Wunger, Head of Datacenter Solutions at Coromatic, comments:
This successful initiative is an example of dedicated partnership at its best. The skills of our two companies in combination have resulted in significant benefits for the local community and for both our businesses. This type of sustainable and innovative project is at the heart of our wide solutions offering.
