Grid Supplies

We have converted it into a unique high-security mountain hall colocation data center with 22 600 m2 (230000 ft2) space available. The main data center comprises of a total of 6 mountain halls, each with two-story concrete buildings built within the mountain. The infrastructure has been designed to be expanded up to 2 x 26MW.

Our mountain hall data center is flexible by design and can be scaled up or down based on our clients’ current and future requirements.

Clients can start with one rack and expand as the need increases. We have server rooms from 50 m2 in size up to 1550 m2 for a single room, and multiple rooms are available. Our clients can have their own data center located within our facilities if they choose to do so.

Although we are Tier III-certified, we can tailor-make your data center requirement to any lower Tier standard. Power density, cooling, security level etc. can be delivered according to customer requirements.

Connectivity

NO-UK installation outside SVG1-Stavanger

SVG1-Rennesøy has redundant fiber paths into the site (last mile) from multiple different carriers, and also manage own fiber both in and out of Norway. The connectivity out of our SVG1-Rennesøy data center secures low-latency options both west to UK (6.5ms to London), east to RJU1-Rjukan, Oslo and Stockholm (5.5 ms) and south to major markets through Denmark to Germany, Netherlands and other core data center hubs.

SVG1-Rennesøy is uniquely positioned to support high transaction levels either as an own data center or as a potential disaster recover/over-flow site.

Power Supplies

Renewable hydropower - Vemork Power Station

SVG1-Rennesøy has three independent grid supplies each fed from multiple hydro electric power plants to secure resilience and redundancy. The result is outstanding robustness of supply. (estimated 99.99997%). To the power supply, we have added additional levels of security in terms of N+1 prime rated generators.

Phase 1 expandable to 2 x 26 MW if provided in Tier III setup, or up to 52 MW if utilized with independent power feed.

Cooling Solution

SVG1-Stavanger with the fjord

SVG1-Rennesøy has a cooling source available from an adjacent deep water fjord. To secure consistent temperature for cooling, water enters our cold water basin through use of gravity from pipes reaching 100-meter depth. Here, water temperature is stable at 8C (46F) all year round.
