Norwegian data center company Green Mountain announced it is working with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) to host high-demand artificial intelligence (AI) and high performance computing (HPC) workloads to customers across two of Green Mountain’s Norwegian locations.

Green Mountain, which positions itself as operating sustainable and energy-efficient data centers powered with minimal CO2 footprints, delivers data center colocation services utilizing liquid cooling and the design of data rooms for high density AI infrastructure.

The Green Mountain and HPE teams collaborated on the design of the data center . Green Mountain’s sustainability efforts includes reuse of excess heat produced by the data centers to benefit other industries. For example, at the Rjukan site, the data center will deliver heated water to a nearby land-based fish farm. By utilizing the energy from the heated water in fish production, the company can reduce the need for electricity, lowering its costs and carbon footprint.

HPE said its goal with Green Mountain is to deliver carbon footprint reduction and minimizing the environmental impact at key phases of customers’ AI implementations, including development, testing and deployment. HPE has built six of the top 10 most energy efficient supercomputers on the Green500 list, and many of those systems run AI workloads.

“We are equipped to meet the booming demand from AI clients, as well as the requirements these customers have for performance and delivery time. Norway has the best conditions for hosting such installations in view of its power surplus, renewable electricity and stable framework conditions,” said Svein Atle Hagaseth, CEO of Green Mountain.

“Our customers are increasingly developing AI models to unlock breakthroughs. Partnering with Green Mountain, a leading provider of sustainable data services in Norway, will enable us to offer our global customers best-in-class AI and HPC capacity and accelerate their innovation journey, all powered by renewable energy,” said Thomas Kraft, managing director, HPE Norway.
