Green Mountain, a prominent Norwegian data centre company, has received the long-awaited approval from the government for the establishment of the TikTok data centre in Norway. This marks a significant milestone for Green Mountain as it will be better regulated from a security perspective as the first datacenter in Norway under the Norwegian Securities Act. The outcome is in line with Green Mountain’s stringent security policies, unwavering commitment to quality, and dedication to transparency.
The 150 MW site, The OSL2-Hamar will have a total of five data centre buildings, each with a capacity of 30 MW, making this Norway’s largest data centre campus.
Earlier, CEO of Green Mountain, Svein Atle Hagaseth had said: “The Hamar region is an ideal location for our data centres. Here, they have a surplus of renewable power, pre-zoned land areas and a competent workforce.”
The site will be built and operated according to Green Mountain’s high sustainability standards. This includes everything from the use of renewable power, certified green buildings and potential heat reuse projects.
“This is the first hyperscale data centre of this scale in Norway and we are grateful for TikTok’s vote of confidence in the project. The site will become a true example of our vision of Setting the green standard.” Hagaseth added.
