Green Mountain has announced the start of construction on a new ten megawatt (MW) building at its OSL1-Enebakk site outside Oslo. The new 5800 square metre 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. Construction has already started, and the project is expected to be complete by 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,” said 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 centre 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,” added 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 centre will be in full operation during construction.
Green Mountain designs, builds and operates highly secure, innovative and sustainable data centres in Norway and the UK. The data centres are powered by low-cost, 100 per cent renewable power and are considered world-leading on energy efficiency.
