DigiPlex, a Nordic leader for sustainable, innovative and secure data centres, has acquired a plot of 60,000 m2, with an option to purchase an additional 100,000 m2 in Treklyngen industrial park in Ringerike municipality outside of Oslo. The seller is Follum Eiendom AS. The site has been prepared for the establishment of a data centre and an agreement with Ringerikskraft ensures the necessary power supply for the first development phase.
Ringerike municipality has ample access to renewable energy with more than 200 MW available. Combined with very good connectivity and proximity to Oslo and Oslo Airport, the area is very attractive for data centre establishment.
“Treklyngen industrial park has a good strategic location, access to renewable energy through the agreement with Ringerikskraft and advanced solutions for circular economy,” said Wiljar Nesse, CEO of DigiPlex. “Acquiring this prime plot will help DigiPlex attract new national and international customers, including in the High Performance Computing (HPC) segment. I would like to thank both Ringerike municipality, the seller, Follum Eiendom, and Ringerikskraft for the warm welcome they have extended us.”
“We welcome DigiPlex to Ringerike and are proud that they have chosen to establish a new data centre here. We have, for several years, purposefully worked to facilitate the establishment of large data centres in the municipality, and we are very pleased to see the results,” said Kirsten Orebråten, Mayor of Ringerike municipality.Click below to share this article
