Energy Supply Chain

Kapuli Business Park enjoys electric power supplies of first-rate dependability, with sufficient capacity ensured through the connection of Nivos Oy (local energy company) at two key points in the Finnish national grid. This means that the Business Park can draw a guaranteed up to 250 MW of electrical power from three electricity stations through any of three power lines. In Finland, you can seek best bids for the electricity.

The 110kV Regional Grid

Mäntsälän Sähkö Oy - 110kv Regional Grid

In 2017 Nivos completed a new, third 110 kV power transmission line directly from the Hikiä generating plant to the substation at Kapuli Business Park. The new line further improves the dependability of electric power supplies to data centers in the Kapuli area. Currently Kapuli is served by three independent 110 kV power cables from three separate connection points on the national grid. The outgoing transmission line connection at Hikiä has also been duplicated to supply two separate substations. Each of the three 110 kV transmission lines is capable of supplying about 250 MW of electric power to Mäntsälä.

There is no minimum connection limit for the Nivos 110 kV regional network, so a new operating point beginning at low peak power may be connected to the regional network by bilateral agreement. This gives you flexibility in timing investments, and the freedom to develop your operations without the constraints of a connection limit.

Kapuli Business Park enjoys electric power supplies of first-rate dependability.

Excess Heat

CDH concept for district heating

Any excess heat from operations such as cooling may be transmitted for further use. Our proposal for your cooling solution is customized district-cooling. This would lower your investment cost as well as cost of energy.

If you choose Mäntsälä to be the site for your data center we can build a facility that would produce both heat and cooling using heat pump technology.

Re-use of excess heat generated by the Yandex datacenter.
Ari Kurvi explains the excess heat collection mechanism in more detail at the CeBIT expo.

Working hours may be arranged by law or collective agreements alternatively, for example in two or three week periods.


An employee has a right to receive pay also for the time he/she is on annual holiday. Normally holiday leave accumulates 2 days (when employment has lasted less than 1 year) or 2 1/2 days for each holiday credit month. Normal wages are paid for the time an employee is on holiday.

Data Sovereignty in Finland

States that have adopted strict legislation on data protection generally tend to be more favorable to the placement of datacenters than states without or lacking sufficient legal framework of data sovereignty.

The legislative environment of Finland is quite different even from the other Nordic countries. In Finland the right of privacy of any communication is a basic right that is inviolable and there is a strong legal protection over governmental surveillance of digital information.

The favorable legislation to store and handle information has led many data center operators to establish business in Finland. The Government of Finland still intends to hold on firmly to this leading position in the world of digitalization and framework necessary for growth of this digital industry will be sustained also in the future.
