Four weeks: That’s how long Swedish bitcoin mining company KnCMiner takes to build a new datacenter, from breaking ground to beginning operations.

“The longest part is signing the agreement,” CEO Sam Cole said Friday, announcing plans for another 20MW datacenter in the Swedish town of Boden, part of the “Node Pole” technology cluster near Lulea where Facebook built one of its most energy-efficient datacenters.

One reason for the speed is that KnC doesn’t have to worry about air conditioning. The Node Pole is on the edge of the Arctic Circle, where cooling can be as simple as opening a door.
