ANOTHER 3MW NORWEGIAN FACILITY
Nordic data center provider DigiPlex, has just opened a new 3MW data center on its Fetsund campus which is in Lillestrøm, a municipality in Norway.
The new data center which features about 900 square meters of white space, further marks DigiPlex‘s third data center on the Fetsund campus after opening the second facility in September 2020 – a 3MW data center that spans about 2,200 square meters in area.
“Speed to market is a critical factor for our hyperscale clients. Our campus approach to data center design and construction allows us to be very agile and respond to these requirements with fast and flexible builds. Completing a single data center in under a year is a huge achievement, announcing the openings of three in the last nine months, whilst battling the disruptions of global pandemic is extraordinary,” said Wiljar Nesse, CEO of DigiPlex.
“As the digitalisation of economies and society continues to accelerate, our ability to secure land and create facilities complete with connectivity and power, ready to hand over to clients in just a few months is a significant competitive advantage.”
Completed in about 12 months, the new data center brings the Fetsund campus to now offer a total usable server space of 6,000 square meters and supports a total IT load capacity of 16MW. DigiPlex now operates eight data centers across Norway, Sweden and Denmark.
While this latest data center has been developed and already reserved for a DigiPlex’s global client, DigiPlex further announced that it is now developing a new 6MW dual hall data center on the campus to allow for additional growth at the location, leveraging the power, fibre and core infrastructure already embedded in the campus environment.
This opening also follows the announcement of an expansion in the company’s Denmark footprint with the development of its second data center campus in the country, and further secured planning and building permissions to construct five data centers on the new Denmark campus site.
