Colonor: Ringerike data center is under construction

  • Sector: Infrastructure
  • Date: January 25, 2021

  • Company: Colonor provides access to secure and ultra-efficient High-Performance Computing (HPC) data centers in Norway.

Colonor has started the initial groundwork for the new data center which is located on lower Kilemoen in Ringerike municipality. Further construction is scheduled to start in the spring and the data center will be finalized towards the end of this year, says Kjetil Hove Pettersen, CEO at Colonor.

Colonor and its German partner Aquila Capital focuses on the European market as they prepare to sell capacity to end customers who take their machines to Kilemoen. This is Aquila Capital’s first investment in the Norwegian data center market through its newly established subsidiary AQ Compute.

The data center will employ between six and ten full time jobs, depending on how fast the data center grows in size, Pettersen explains. In addition to the workforce, the data center is dependent on external local services such as electricians, technicians and security, Pettersen concludes.
