Why Nordavind DC Sites?


  • The sites are shielded from natural hazards such as extreme rainfall, flooding, high winds, landslides etc.
  • Secure electricity supply: both national and regional production combine to support 200+ MW of electricity
  • Independent, international feeds of dark fiber can be provided at all sites.
  • Empowered and well educated work force in stable societies


  • Cold climate (yearly average temperature in Inland Norway is 1,2 – 4,2 °C) provides efficient cooling and low power consumption.
  • Employer’s contribution to the National Insurance Scheme at only 6.4 % for the northern sites compared to 14.1 % in more central regions of Norway. This saves approximately USD 4750 per employee every year.
  • Low property prices
  • No property tax (Rendalen).
  • And of course: Like the rest of Norway, significant surplus of hydropower provides the lowest, long term electricity prices in the Nordics, further boosted by a significant power tax reduction from 2016.


  • Several extremely large sites and locations. Regulated/zoned and controlled by us.
  • We also have central sites one hour from Oslo International Airport, and near the cities of Hamar, Lillehammer, Gjøvik and Elverum.
  • Nordavind is established as a dedicated, professional provider of locations for DC operators.
  • We can answer all questions and facilitate any operational aspect that requires local knowledge, from technical issues to taxes.
