  • There are 3 levels of power supply on site; the national grid Statnett, the regional Haugaland Kraft and the local Kvinnherad Energi – hence redundant power supply.
  • Available power supply 5-10MW / 22KV. +20MW expansion available within short timespan.

Water/cooling options

  • Direct water to water heat exchangers. No need for cooling compressors.
  • A constant reliable supply of cooling water from the fjord outside pumped from 45m at a temperature +5°

(Alternate cold water from the power turbine next hall)

Energy prices

The national tax on hydroelectric power to be used at DataCenters was on January 2016 significantly reduced (from 13øre to 0,48øre kWh). Hence sustainable energy is offered in Norway at highly competitive prices. A datacenter in use for 10MW will save NOK1billion over a 10 years period compared to the prices in the UK.

Price on hydroelectric power; NO2 Spot + 3,0 øre kWh.

Grid Connection; Fixed 9100 / “effect” NOK42 /kW.

Connectivity

Reliable redundant dark fiber network are on local, regional, national and international level.
