    Tornio

    The American company group Silent Partner Group said on Monday that it is planning a hyper-large 250-megawatt data center in Tornio. What an institution it would become!

    The designed data center would be energy efficient and secure. It would generate its energy from natural gas itself, as well as solar and wind power, and a large battery would be built in the plant. Waste heat would be used in greenhouses, for example. The resulting carbon dioxide should also be recovered and used.

    Representatives of Silent Partner Group spoke about their intentions in a Skype interview from FDCF ry, which represents the Finnish data center industry . The FDCF wanted to give Americans an opportunity to dispel the suspicion that their plans have aroused.

    The FDCF interview leaves you feeling even more unreal. Building a large data center is expensive, and one can only imagine how much it will cost to build the necessary power generation itself. In addition to Tornio, data centers are planned in Sotkamo, Hamina and Norway.

    The story continues after the ad

    The story goes on

    The information is disturbing

    With which muscles are such large ones designed? The information available from the Silent Partner Group is mainly a cause for concern.

    The Silent Partner Group's website is home-made: at worst, there is Latin text behind the links. Based on the website, the company’s address is in a tower block in Tampa, Florida. According to the Whois service, the company’s CEO Dale Hobbie set up the site last year, using Yahoo’s email from all the people as a contact and probably his home address in Texas.

    The Hobbies interviewed by the FDCF have little mention or pictures on the Internet, especially those older than a year. In his LinkedIn profile, Hobbie describes himself as some sort of turbocharged financial missile with 30 years of leadership experience and degrees from several universities spiced up behind an elite soldier.

    Nowhere does the Silent Partner Group present its references. Apparently, the group of companies has almost no activity - at least nothing that would allow it to imagine building data centers worth at least hundreds of millions of euros in the Nordic countries.


    So far, no Finnish companies have been contacted about the Yankee company.
    It is not a normal course of action behind the crap either. The company has told its customers nothing more than that they are not being sought from artificial intelligence and block chain computing.


    Reminds me of what happened in Ballangen

    The whole is ominously reminiscent of the events in Ballangen, Norway. Last year, Kolos, an American-backed company, said it was planning the world’s largest data center with power plants for a small town in the armpits of Lofoten.

    According to Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation's NRK , the municipality sold a 60-hectare plot of land in a good location to Kolos for about one million euros. Kolos never paid for the plot. Instead, Kolos and its plots were sold last spring for about ten million euros to a Canadian virtual currency mining company that is now designing a 30 MW data center in Ballangen that is ten times smaller.

    In October, a representative of the municipality of Ballangen told NRK that the value plot would still be returned to the municipality if nothing was built on it over the next 2.5 years.


    In the spring, a major American investor also promised to build a giant data center on the Norwegian Arctic Circle in Bodø .

    The man had little background information on the internet, and he seemed to be moving in Norway under a different name than in his home country. Of course, no money was found in the data center.
