The Norwegian Solution








LEDAL MINE DATACENTER Lefdal Mine Datacenter (LMD) is one of the world’s largest data centers built in a decommissioned mine on the west coast of Norway. Norway and Lefdal Mine has nature given advantages for housing data center capacity. The former mine as location, green power, the low cost of power and cooling, stabile infrastructure and political environment enables LMD to deliver a leading data center facility in Europe. A underground tunnel system consisting of 5 levels with 75 chambers provides 120.000 square meters of space for an infrastructure with a potential capacity of 200 MW.

POWER AT LOW COST LMD is located near 350 MW short traveled hydro power production. There is a large surplus power production in the region. The power price in Norway is leading low in Europe. Long term power contracts are available. 98,5% of the power production in Norway is renewable.

SCALABILITY LMD have the possibility of building out 120.000 m2 of whitespace in the facility and housing up to 200 MW capacity. With our modular design, time to market is 6-8 weeks. Customers can reserve space and capacity for future growth.

HIGH DENSITY LMD uses the cold fjord next to the facility for cooling. The cold sea water interacts with heat exchangers and a closed fresh water circuit providing 2N chilled water under the raised floor. Inline cooling is used for transforming the cold water to cold air enabling densities up to 50 KW/rack.

FLEXIBILITY LMD can facilitate all known concepts for white space solutions and the facility structure enables a streamlined solution for IT containers in different shapes and sizes in a cost-effective way. LMD can customize power density, temperature, humidity, operational equipment, tier levels and all related services.

LEADING GREEN LMD is one of Europe’s greenest data centers. In addition to operating on renewable power, the cooling solution enable the facility to run with an industry leading PUE guaranteed at 1.15. CO2 emission and water usage effectiveness (WUE) is “0”. The mine was already there – limited footprint.

SECURITY LMD offers one of Europe’s most secure data center facilities. The data center is an underground mountain hall facility with leading infrastructure. Integrated point monitoring and access control system. The Uptime Institute Tier III standard, and IBM Level 3 has been used as references for the technical solution.
