Green Mountain AS and Schneider Electric announced that the three-megawatt data centre capacity at the DC2-Telemark site has gone live in readiness for customer occupation
In order to achieve rapid deployment at the brownfield development and meet customer requirements, Green Mountain deployed Schneider Electric?s prefabricated EcoStruxure Modular Data Center- reducing time to market by 50 per cent.
?Norway is becoming a major destination as customers concerned about the sustainability of their data centre services seek to increase their use of renewable power sources and avail of abundant free cooling supplies,? said Tor Kristian Gyland, CEO, Green Mountain AS.
Reducing risk in design and construction
Towards the end of 2018, Green Mountain announced the expansion of its two high profile data centre developments to deliver four megawatts at Stavanger and a further three megawatt at Telemark. To facilitate the capacity increases, Green Mountain awarded Schneider Electric US$11.28mn to deliver a complete solution utilising the competencies of the company?s Energy Management business unit.
The two companies had history having collaborated to launch Green Mountain?s high efficiency and highly secure DC1-Stavanger facility.
The new capacity has been enabled by a Schneider Electric turnkey solution comprising 15 EcoStruxure Modular Data Centre Power and Cooling modules, together with MV and LV switchgear and EcoStruxure management software.
The equipment was factory assembled and tested at Schneider Electric?s new Barcelona facility and delivered to site via road transportation.
