Our sustainable data center sites

Nordavind Data Center Sites offers shovel-ready sites for medium-sized and hyperscale data centers, with access to renewable hydropower. By establishing a data centre in Norway, data-dependent companies can greatly reduce or eliminate carbon emissions.

Data centers based in Norway benefit from stable political and economic conditions, as well as wholesale electricity prices among the lowest in Europe. Additionally, the cold climate ensures efficient cooling and low power consumption.

Most of the sites available from Nordavind are placed in areas dominated by flat terraces built up of sand and gravel, which can reduce construction costs. Moreover, this part of Norway is less susceptible to extreme weather, winds, flooding, landslides and other natural disasters.

At some of the sites, excess heat from the data centres can be reused to heat nearby industry and homes, further enabling companies checking off UN SDGs.

  • Carbon neutral energy from 97 % renewable hydropower
  • Extremely stable grids: Your data center is supplied by both reliable national feeds and regional production
  • Power costs among the lowest in Europe, and grid cost the lowest in Scandinavia and Europe.
  • At least two independent, international feeds of dark fiber can be provided at all sites.
