The Bitfury Group reported in official blog on the opening of new datacenter in Mo i Rana, Norway.
Bitfury Press Conference
Bitfury claims that datacenter will provide 30 new job openings and is investing about 274 million NOK (35 million USD) in the datacenter’s infrastructure.
Norway is a perfect match for Bitfury’s focus on innovation and growth. We look forward to identifying new customer relationships and designing the products and solutions they need to make their enterprises run more securely and efficiently.
As Bitfury reports, on average, the power usage effectiveness (PUE) in the datacenter is 1.05 or lower, making it one of the world’s most energy efficient.
I am delighted that the Bitfury Group has chosen to establish their new data center in Norway and Mo i Rana. Data will become an increasingly important resource for the business community as well as for society in general. This represents a major economic opportunity for Norwegian businesses. The datacenter industry is growing fast, and provides Norway with opportunities of economic growth and new jobs.
