Local network

Here in the Bergen region, we have a well-developed local network of competence that can help to make your data center a success. We can split this network into three groups.

The enablers

GreenByte is working alongside other public and private actors to supercharge the data center industry in western Norway.

This includes public authorities such as Hordaland County Council, Bergen Council and other local municipalities, who have come together to welcome new data businesses to our region.

One of Norway’s largest energy companies, BKK, is ready to work alongside data center operators as a partner and key supplier. The company will provide energy services for power, heat-recycling and cooling to help your facility to get up and running.

GreenByte together with our sister company Invest in Bergen also aim to make it as easy as possible for you to do business in western Norway. If you have any questions, simply get in touch.

The educators

Greater Bergen is home to a wide range of universities and research institutions, with a strong focus on technical subjects.

Alongside the prestigious University of Bergen, you’ll find specialist institutions such as the Norwegian Business School and the Western Norway University of Applied Sciences.

These institutions are producing the technicians of the future. These bright minds can help you to create the data centers of tomorrow, and serve your customers better than ever before.

The digital innovators

The Greater Bergen area is undergoing rapid development, as the public sector and many businesses are looking towards a digital future.

The region is home to a number of world-leading companies as well as a thriving community of start-ups and scale-ups. Bergen Council is also in the process of developing a digital platform for public services.  Data centers will play a vital role in this ecosystem as more and more businesses begin to explore big data and high-performance computing (HPC).

Large regional players such as TV2 are already considering the need for greater data storage capacity, while business clusters such as NCE Seafood and GCE Ocean Technology have seen a growing demand for big data analysis among their members.

Companies in the Bergen region are already thinking about what’s on the horizon. Will you join them?
