Green Mountain has signed a deal with TikTok to support their data storage needs in Europe with a new campus based in Norway.
To support TikTok’s increasing data demands, Green Mountain will construct a 150 MW site, dubbed the OSL2-Hamar, to be located in the Hamar region. The site will feature five data centre buildings, with each facility providing 30 MW of capacity. According to Green Mountain, TikTok has signed an initial contract for three buildings offering a combined 90 MW of capacity, with potential to expand up to 150 MW capacity by 2025.
The first building is scheduled for completion by November 202, with the site set to utilise renewable power, certified green buildings and heat reuse projects.
“The Hamar region is an ideal location for our data centres. Here, they have a surplus of renewable power, pre-zoned land areas and a competent workforce,” said CEO of Green Mountain, Svein Atle Hagaseth.
“This is the first hyperscale data centre of this scale in Norway and we are grateful for TikTok’s vote of confidence in the project. The site will become a true example of our vision of Setting the green standard.”
Hagaseth continued, “A cooperative and forward-looking attitude from the local authorities, power and grid company, contractor and other local stakeholders has been crucial in the realisation of the project.
“The government’s data centre strategy has been an important reason why companies such as Green Mountain are experiencing growth and great demand for our services. This project demonstrates that Norway has gained a reputation as a perfect data centre location.”
