Green Mountain signs 10 MW expansion in Norway
Green Mountain grows rapidly and has started construction of a new 10 MW building at its OSL1-Enebakk site outside Oslo. The new 5800 sqm building is an extension to two already existing buildings dedicated to an international cloud provider.
The two-storey building will be physically connected to the client’s already existing buildings and thereby increasing the total footprint of this client to 18 MW. Constructions have already started and completion is estimated to May 2024.
In addition to the built-to-suit project for this client the campus also holds a 13.5 MW colocation facility that was completed in December 2022.
“We are very excited about all the activity going on at our Enebakk campus right now. Especially, that our client has renewed their trust in us and chosen to expand their activities here.” says Svein Atle Hagaseth, CEO of Green Mountain.
Green Mountain has experienced a massive growth in recent months with expansion at all their sites.
“Norway is truly beginning to make its mark in the data center industry. The country’s value proposition of renewable and affordable power, strong connectivity, competent workforce and stable framework conditions resonate well with international clients. Based on the positive feedback we receive in the market, I expect a steep growth curve also in the years to come.” adds Hagaseth.
CTS Nordics has been chosen as the Design & Build contractor for this project and will use modular builds to construct and connect the buildings. The current data center will be in full operation during constructions and will also result in new jobs at the site. As always, Green Mountain data centers run on 100% renewable power are market-leading on energy efficiency.
Green Mountain designs, builds and operates highly secure, innovative and sustainable data centers in Norway and the UK. The data centers are powered by low-cost, 100 percent renewable power and are world-leading on energy efficiency.
The company currently operates the following data center locations: SVG1-Rennesøy near Stavanger, RJU1-Rjukan in Telemark and the OSL1-Enebakk data center about 20 km outside of Oslo. In addition, a data center in London (LON1-East) was recently established through the acquisition of an existing company. It is located in one of the most important data center hubs in the world. Furthermore, Green Mountain builds Norway’s largest data center campus at Hamar and have partnered with German power company KMW to establish a new data center in the Frankfurt region.
Existing customers include large international companies within cloud, banking/finance, HPC, automotive and more.
