Average Liquid Cooling
Air Cooling Power/Rack
The first facility is currently under construction, close to Oslo and Norway’s largest international airport.
This facility will be a 5 MW IT colocation facility, prepared with the potential to support high-density racks for HPC. The power supply potential is up to 40 MW in the site area. The site can also support standard densities – 5 kW, up to HPC (+100kW) per rack.
Norway, an ideal data centre location
Despite its geographical location at the edge of Europe, Norway is increasingly moving to the centre of European data traffic by virtue of the expansion of network connections. Access to green power and a cool climate make Norway an ideal location for data centres.
Owing to the availability of renewable energy, low electricity prices and cold cooling water, Norway is an attractive location for building large data centres. 98% of the electricity is generated from renewable sources. Thus, Norway offers the most competitive electricity prices in Europe.
