The massive data center will be the roughly size of 14 hockey rinks and cost SEK 1.4 billion to complete, of which SEK 36 million will be funded by an investment from the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth.

A study from Luleå University found that the first data center has created about 100 permanent jobs in the area.
