Vertiv, a global provider of critical digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, has announced the establishment of a new legal entity in Norway, further strengthening its partnership with colocation provider Green Mountain and supporting its rapid growth in Northern Europe. This strategic move is a testament to Vertiv’s commitment to delivering sustainable and scalable infrastructure to meet the increasing demands of customers and end users.
As part of its expansion plans, Green Mountain has embarked on the ambitious OSL2-Hamar project which involves the construction of a cutting-edge data centre in Hamar, Norway. Recognised as being one of the greenest providers in the industry, the OSL2-Hamar site will be powered by 90MW of renewable hydropower energy, with the potential to scale up to 150MW to accommodate future growth and will be enabled to provide balancing services to support the grid. The facility is scheduled to deploy its first 30MW building in November 2023.
“The OSL2-Hamar project is a monumental challenge that requires collective efforts and strong partnerships, thus we extend our sincere appreciation to Vertiv for its exceptional support,” said Svein Atle Hagaseth, CEO, Green Mountain. “Vertiv’s unwavering commitment and expertise has been instrumental in driving the success of this initiative and we value their partnership in shaping the future of environmentally friendly data centres.”
Green Mountain boasts impressive credentials, including a PUE ratio of 1.25, 100% hydropower energy sources, Tier III certifications and a record of 100% uptime and SLA compliance.Click below to share this article
