Kapuli Business Park for Logistics, Mäntsälä

Kapuli Business Park is just a stone’s throw away from the Mäntsälä center, and only 45 minutes from Helsinki-Vantaa International Airport by road. Our energy company, Nivos, helps you with the energy and broadband related matters. Cool climate and reusable excess heat helps in keeping the data center costs down. Excess heat from cooling is transmitted for heating houses in Mäntsälä.

Site and Building Quota

Site area is 3 - 30 hectares, the buildable area is 2 – 20 hectares.

Shape and topography:

  • Kapuli IIc: already leveled and ready to build. Soil condition: broken rocks.
  • Kapuli III: will be leveled beforehand. Soil condition: broken rocks, moraine.

Municipality of Mäntsälä owns approximately 100 hectares of land at the Kapuli Industrial Area.

Approximately 38 hectares of the area has been zoned so far. The rest of the area will also be zoned as an industrial and logistics area in the next few years.

In addition, there are plans for a road connecting Sälinkääntie road to Kehä V; this connection will go across the area.

The lot to be sold (unseparated parcels of land) are owned by the municipality, and the construction of buildings for industrial and logistics purposes is allowed under the current city plan, as is the case already with the headquarters and logistics centre of Tokmanni retail store chain (71 700 square metres) and a private investor's hall (4000 square metres).

In practice, a water pipe and a sewer have already been constructed reaching the border of the lot, and there is also a natural gas pipeline nearby.

Moreover, district heating is available from the neighbours.

At its natural state, the lot was forested land with bedrock outcrops, the soil was levelled in 2008-2009 to the present height using soil excavated from the area.

Planning & Permitting

Zoning and readiness for construction: Detailed city planning is in progress.

Permits: Ordinary building permits, other permits depend on the activities and are regulated by mostly environmental laws

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.

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.

Excess Heat

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.

Case: Yandex Data Center

Nivos has launched a heat recovery plant and the heat transfer to the district heating network. The heat recovery is carried out in cooperation with Yandex data center. Yandex data parlors generate heat, which is collected and directed along the district heating network to the Mäntsälä households. Initially, the waste heat can be collected corresponding to the heating amount around a thousand houses. In this scale the project is the first one in the world.

Due to the collected waste heat carbon dioxide emissions are reduced by up to 40% in Nivos district heating. This is a significant achievement, as the case of district heating, it corresponds to the objective EU set for emission reductions in 2030. Heat recycling is good for the environment and in the long-term will also improve the competitiveness of district heating, because at the moment 50 % of the natural gas usage can be replaced by recycled heat. In case of data center extension recovery of the waste heat can be Increased, the ideal situation is that natural gas could be replaced by natural waste-heat in its entirety.
