SMART SUSTAINABLE CITIES

SPARK is a union of sustainable real estate development, EDGE Computing and a blockchain ecosystem, to create the model for future smart communities, placing environmentally friendly data centers at the core.

SPARK CITY

In collaboration with Snøhetta, Skanska, AsplanViak and Nokia, a high level design phase has been carried out to develop a vision for a new data centre model- creating the “SPARK City” concept. The SPARK City, places its primary emphasis on energy efficiency and the re-use of thermal energy to the surrounding campus elements or city.

The purpose is to innovate and orient ourselves towards the future. The associated challenge will be to implement innovative techniques and methods that are not yet commercialized or in standard production. Therefore, we may use advanced terms for elements that are not yet commonly used, but that, through high-intensity innovation and collaboration between MIRIS and its partners, we expect to deploy in these projects.

Smart Sensor technology and IoT is at the center of our SPARK Concept.
By digitalisation and Real Time data monitoring, we utilise Artificial Intelligence to optimise energy usage, data transfer speeds, air quality, and other parameters.

SPARK - DEVELOPMENT CONCEPT

NOKIA and MIRIS have formed a partnership for the build-out of the SPARK City EDGE computing Data Centres. The Partnership is enshrined in a strong MoU that clearly sets out how a pilot phase with 15 sites will be handled. NOKIA is responsible for the technology, while MIRIS is responsible for the property/land where the Data Centres will be located.  Operation and management of the Data Centres will be by collaboration between partners as to contracting with customers to use the computing power. The operational model is straightforward and follows a traditional telecoms-model, at the same time reflecting NOKIA’s strong slogan: At Nokia, we create the technology to connect the world.

SPARK - BUSINESS MODEL

MIRIS is responsible for aquisition of land, zoning and concept development. However, MIRIS will only develop 30% of residential areas and 50% of commercial areas. All other property will be sold to Industry, Municipalities and other property developers.

SPARK - DATA CENTER

EDGE computing makes faster data processing possible by placing computing power close to the users. This technology enables connected devices to process data created at the “EDGE,” which is either within or much closer to the devices themselves. It requires data centers to be built much closer to users in business and residential communities, as this provides faster service. However, data centers traditionally produce large amounts of wasted thermal energy and are noisy.

The MIRIS SPARK concept use silent liquid cooling to cool the data centers. The heated thermal energy by-product will be channeled to provide sustainable heating to the surrounding areas. This reduces the need for additional energy generation, all the while providing the construction and development capability to build the smart communities of the future.

MIRIS also ensures the optimization of the size and positioning of the data centers for living and working practices from full-size data centers integrated with the surrounding community, to small tactical units inserted into pockets of urban centers where they are needed, and supports regeneration.
