History

In 2013/2014, external data center experts scanned through all of Norway to find the best potential sites for hyper-scale data centers. They looked for sites with large amounts of renewable power, robust grids, international fibre connections, space to build, low electricity prices and favorable tax regulations, and found it in our region.

The cooperation between the first municipalities has grown to include regional power companies, grid operators and fibre network operators, as well as new municipalities in the southern part of the region, close to Oslo airport.
