Green Mountain, the Norwegian colocation provider, announced that the company designed, constructed, and delivered to a client a 2.5 MW data hall inside one of the mountain halls in less than 9 months. The company also stated that a cave in the mountain has been transformed into a fully operational data center space, complete with interiors, cooling, power, and security.
1800 square meters, 2.5 MW
The power capacity in this data hall is 2.5 MW but the company also started a project to double its capacity and it will ready in early 2021. The facility is about 1800 square meters and as with all Green Mountain data centers, it runs on 100% renewable hydropower, cooled by fjord cooling solution. The new site is located in Enebakk, 20 km outside Oslo. Tor Kristian Gyland, CEO of Green Mountain said,
“We continue to experience a surge in demand for our sustainable colocation services. Especially the larger cloud service clients rely on us for fast buildouts in a market where the demand for their cloud services accelerates. We have already started yet another expansion project for the same client and we are actively working to find new locations for growth. The most promising area right now is the Kalberg valley on the western coast of Norway but later this fall we will also open our third data center site.”
