AQ Compute expands its data center in Norway:
AQ-OSL1B and AQ-OSL1C go live in Q1 2025


  • AQ-OSL1B & AQ-OSL1C will expand the company’s existing AI-ready data center close to Oslo by 15 MW gross power; joint expandable power supply is 171 MW
  • Reason for the expansion is the continued high demand of the industry
  • Renewable energy, different cooling solutions and excess heat reuse to lower operational costs and reduce carbon footprint


Hamburg / Oslo, 30 May 2024 – To reflect the growing demand for AI-ready data centers, European colocation data center provider AQ Compute today announces the expansion of its AQ-OSL1 facility near the Norwegian capital Oslo.

AQ Compute’s data center, AQ-OSL1 in Hønefoss near Oslo, has already been designed as an AI-ready and colocation facility. The site has been in operation since February this year. The existing data center AQ-OSL1A has 6 MW IT power today, which will be expanded by 15 MW gross power – with the two expansion stages AQ-OSL1B and AQ-OSL1C. The expansion will be entirely liquid-cooled, with an integrated closed loop cooling circuit to increase energy efficiency and avoid water wastage. For the cooling of the racks, rear door heat exchangers (RDHX), immersion cooling and direct to chip cooling technology will be available, meeting the requirements of efficient AI-ready operations in a sustainable way.

“AQ Compute is excited to announce the expansion of AQ-OSL1. Our first data center is in operation since February, and Norway has already proven to be an ideal location for data centers. With the expansion of AQ-OSL1 we aim to meet the increasing demand for AI-ready data centers, while our sustainability concept supports our clients in reducing their environmental impact”, says Andreas Myr, CEO of AQ Compute Norway.

Following the standard of AQ-OSL1A, the expansion will have 24/7 remote hands services available and 24/7 security on site to guarantee the best possible support for AQ Compute’s clients.
