Norwegian-based Green Mountain, a leader in sustainable colocation data centres, reveals plans to expand into the UK. Green Mountain’s owner, Azrieli Group, has announced it has signed an agreement to acquire an existing data centre and available adjacent land, both with further expansion and development potential, in Romford, East London. Through this acquisition, the site will be upgraded and re-branded as Green Mountain and become part of its operations.
Azrieli Group and the seller signed a share purchase agreement for the acquisition of the properties owned by Infinity SDC. in Romford. This campus includes an existing data centre with significant expansion potential and available land for further development and is located less than 10 miles from the major financial centres of the City of London and Docklands. With the use of secured green power, it is capable of supporting up to 40MW of IT load and already has several strong UK enterprises as core tenants. Completion of the acquisition is subject to certain conditions and is expected to take place before the end of the year.
“We are very excited to expand our operations outside of Norway and this site is a perfect match for us. London is an extremely important data centre hub and a must-have location for many international companies,” said Tor Kristian Gyland, CEO of Green Mountain.
“With this expansion, we can offer a broader portfolio of sites with immediately available green power. We can serve clients who have capacity requirements or need to remain in the London area while still achieving their sustainability targets. This is a long-awaited request from both our current and prospective clients.”Click below to share this article
