Green Mountain continues to experience demand from international clients who want to move their workloads to highly sustainable locations. Recently, Green Mountain signed a new contract for a build-to-suit project at DC2-Telemark. The construction work started immediately after contract signing and includes expanding the existing building with another 300 square meters. Moreover, Green Mountain is adding 4.5 MW of electrical and mechanical capacity to facilitate the new client’s installation as well as its future growth plans.
“We are very excited to have this new client onboard with Green Mountain,” said Tor Kristian Gyland, CEO of Green Mountain. “The client will use the facility for high-performance computing [HPC], something that this site is very well-suited for. DC2-Telemark is in the middle of a valley that produces 5% of the country’s electricity, and it is all based on 100% renewable hydropower.”
With this new expansion, Green Mountain will continue to build expertise in supporting HPC customers with on-site installations, day-to-day operations, and project management. As a result, we will strengthen the on-site team with seven new field engineers.
Only 800 meters form the site, Hima Seafood has started the construction of the world largest onshore trout farm. When set in operation in 2023, it will use the excess heat from Green Mountain’s facility. In return, the data center will receive cold water to cool the data halls again. This true circularity project will further support the client in reaching its sustainability targets.“We see that DC2-Telemark is becoming an attractive alternative for international corporations looking for sustainable, scalable, and cost-efficient solutions,” saidSvein Atle Hagaseth, CSO of Green Mountain. “We expect significant growth at this site in the coming months. Having an established HPC ecosystem enables us to retain and build knowledge to support our clients’ need of world-class smart-hands services at site.”
