Caverion to be in Charge of the Monitoring and Maintenance of the Second-largest Open Data Centre in the Nordics
Caverion and Telia Finland have signed a contract covering the control room operator services and property maintenance of the new Telia Helsinki Data Center. The open data centre to be built in the Pitäjänmäki district in Helsinki will be the most secure, energy efficient and environment-friendly data centre in the Nordic countries.
Caverion's control room operators will work at the data centre and be responsible for the operations of the facility 24/7, every day of the year. The control room operators will monitor the operations and react to potential changes according to an agreed-upon model. In addition, professionals in building systems have been trained in data centre operations and will act on duty in case of any emergency work.
Caverion is also responsible for maintaining the technical systems of the building and for monitoring warranty-period systems and warranty maintenance.
"We are happy that Telia has chosen us as their partner at this highly challenging site. The new open data centre offers wide opportunities for services utilising digitalisation and we want to be part of their implementation," says Raimo Ojanen, Business Manager at Caverion South Finland.
All heat generated at Helsinki Data Center will be collected and the collected heat can be used to heat up to 10,000 households. The data centre meets TIER 3 class reliability requirements and high security classifications. The planned IT capacity of the centre is 24 MW and its initial capacity will be at least 6 MW.

A growing number of companies want to use big data analytics in their predictive maintenance and are also investing in the resources needed for this. Of the companies already using this technology, no less than 95 percent say that they have already achieved concrete results. This is the conclusion of a follow-up study conducted by PwC and Mainnovation among 268 companies in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium.
In today’s operating and production environments, systems and equipment must routinely perform at levels that were not possible a decade ago and which were unthinkable thirty years ago. Requirements for increased availability, throughput, product quality, agility, and operating effectiveness within a rapidly-changing demand environment continue to elevate the tempo and intensity of operations.
