Launch of Micro Data Centre Installation in the Nordics
Hanley Energy officially launched their new Nordic office and PowerHive Micro Data Centre installation at the Embassy of Ireland in Stockholm, Sweden.
Minister for Business and Employment, Ged Nash TD inaugurated the installation in the presence of Ambassador Orla O’Hanrahan and a wide range of Nordic guests encompassing industry leaders and government organisations, to experience the new technology trend toward integrated standardised IT solutions.
Guests were treated to a presentation on the development of Micro and Prefab Data Centres and what we can expect for the future by David O’Coimin, Global Business Development and Sales Director.
The presentation was complete with a live product demonstration and guests got to experience the soundproofed ‘Micro data centre in a box’ solution for remote and branch offices in operation.
Organisations use PowerHive to save space, cost and deployment time and the flexibility and sustainability benefits were evident to all as the new installation fits seamlessly into the Irish embassy office environment.
Speaking at the event, David O’Coimin stated:
Sweden is a country whose people value many of the same beliefs and qualities as we do at Hanley Energy. We share a forward thinking, fast-acting, early-adopter mentality. We both think with a social mentality and with sustainability and efficiency top of mind throughout. Sweden has shown itself to be the right environment for Hanley Energy to focus part of our international growth strategy and we look forward to providing new Swedish customers with comprehensive turnkey infrastructure solutions and services, starting today.
At the concluding of the event, Minister Nash declared:
Ireland is a strong, design lead innovative nation and that’s best demonstrated and promoted through companies like Hanley Energy. I really believe in Hanley Energy and I think they have great potential to grow considerably in the Nordics over the next few years. I would ask you all in Swedish industry to engage with the company and to see how Hanley Energy’s solutions can help your business to grow and develop in a sustainable way.
Hanley Energy have been active in the Nordics since 2013, breaking into the market shortly after winning a prestigious award from the Global Cleantech Cluster Association in Lahti Finland, who ranked us as a top clean technology company in the world.
Establishing our Nordic base in Stockholm made perfect sense and is located in close proximity to Enterprise Ireland and the Irish Embassy who have offered us great early support in accessing the market.
Stockholm is currently Europe’s fasting growing city and boasts a significant number of global Swedish & international companies. The Swedish region has proved very forward thinking & sustainability conscious and are undergoing a new paradigm in energy efficiency technology.
Hanley Energy are confident of great success in the Scandinavian markets and we are already developing significant local and international projects for the PowerHive solution and for Data Centre, turn-key services in energy management and converged IT infrastructure.
We want to deepen our trade partnerships by promoting our innovative products and services while maximizing opportunities for us to compete and win in these particular export markets
The globally-recognised Irish-owned and managed company has also recently announced the opening of a new manufacturing facility and sales office in New Jersey, USA to serve the North American market – increasing their expanding operations which also includes a European base in Frankfurt, Germany.
