Nordic data centre operator, Green Mountain, has completed the construction of a new 13.5 megawatt (MW) data centre in connection with its current OSL1-Enebakk campus at Enebakk, outside Oslo. This is the third data centre on this campus and is intended for colocation, with the first client moving in by the end of January.
With this expansion, the data centre campus consists of three data centres. The first two four MW data centres house a single tenant, while the third 13.5 MW building is intended for multi-tenant usage. The 10,000 metre squared (m²), three-story building offers 1,300m² of white space on each floor and is built according to a Tier III standard. Capacity is already reserved for several clients, but there is still some available capacity both in this building and in future planned expansions at the campus. The total area of the site is 75,000 m², with a total capacity of 93 MW.
“We still experience strong interest from the market. Being able to offer a sustainable data centre operated on 100 percent renewable energy is especially attractive for international clients. The site is also ideal both in terms of power availability, connectivity and proximity to the Norwegian capital,” said Tor Kristian Gyland, CEO of Green Mountain. “In addition, we designed this data centre with flexibility in mind as we wanted to accommodate a broad set of clients’ needs. Customisation is the key word.”
CTS Nordics has been the Design & Build contractor for this project. “In light of the global challenges concerning material availability and delivery delays, it is a great achievement to deliver according to plan. We have cooperated well with CTS to find alternative solutions when incidents beyond our control have affected the progress. I would like to commend everyone involved in the project for an extraordinary effort,” said Terje Huseby, chief project officer at Green Mountain.
