Vertiv has established a new legal entity in Norway as it supports Green Mountain’s expansion in Northern Europe.
Green Mountain is currently developing the 150 MW OSL2-Hamar project located in Hamar, Norway. The site will be powered by 90 MW of renewable hydropower energy and will be capable of providing grid balancing services. The facility is scheduled to deploy its first 30 MW 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 Green Mountain’s CEO Svein Atle Hagaseth.
“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.”
Karsten Winther, President of Vertiv for EMEA, added, “As we expand our operations in Norway and support Green Mountain’s remarkable growth in Northern Europe, Vertiv is proud to play a pivotal role in providing efficient and scalable infrastructure solutions and services.
“This collaboration exemplifies our commitment to delivering cutting-edge data centre technologies and exceptional customer support. Together, we are shaping the future of data centres while driving innovation, enhanced efficiency, and business growth.”
Vertiv has partnered with Green Mountain since 2020, with the latter deploying Vertiv Liebert EXL S1 UPS with Dynamic Grid Support and advanced battery storage systems.
“We are proud to be at the forefront of sustainability and data privacy and we are committed to sharing our expertise across the market, to help create balanced delivery models and sustainability practices,” added Hagaseth.
“Our vision includes multiple locations to be deployed in Norway, making it our hub country for new deployments. With the anticipated increase in enterprise workloads and overall digitalisation, we are determined to meet these demands with long-term capabilities.”
