Green Mountain Spends €42m On Building New Data Centre
Green Mountain has started construction on a third data centre in Norway, with the site near Oslo eventually set to increase the company’s colocation capacity by 40MW. The first 4MW are set to come on stream in September 2020.
Oslo gives Green Mountain greater opportunities for growth. Its proximity to diverse fibre routes to Europe and the US are often decisive factors for international clients. A “substantial international client” has already signed a contract for the entire first data centre building, said the firm.
The new campus at Enebakk will join an underground facility outside Stavanger and a data centre at Rjukan, Telemark.
“To support the growth strategy we have for a long time considered an expansion in this part of Norway. One of our largest existing clients specifically requested us to build in the capital area, so our first building at this site is reserved entirely for this client,” said CEO of Green Mountain Tor Kristian Gyland.
He added: “We have already received several customer requests, both national and international, so it is likely that a multi-tenant data centre facility will be the next step of the expansion.”
In the last 12 months, Green Mountain has invested around NOK400m (€40m) in expanding its other two sites and says it will spend a further NOK420 €42m on the new facility.
Gyland said Norway’s abundance of low-cost renewable power and the Norwegian government’s “beneficial framework conditions” were aiding the firm’s expansion plans.
The new site manager of the DC3-Oslo site is already employed and will soon initiate the process of recruiting technical staff. When the first data centre building is in operation an estimated 40 people will have permanent employment at the site.
