FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
FLORIDA, USA – The Silent Partner Group of Companies™, in association with Energi Danmark AS (Denmark), Energi Salg Norge AS (Norway) and Energia Myynti Soumi Oy (Finland), have announced today that as of 4 September, 2018, the consortium of Silent Partner International, Inc. (USA), Power Systems Group International, LLC (USA), PVD Modular, LLC (USA) and Storespeed AS (Norway), through their newly established Norwegian joint venture firms, Power Systems Group Norway AS (PSGN) and Asgard Development Group AS (ADG),
have been contractually engaged to develop, own and operate three (3) Hyper-Efficient Off-the-Grid (HE-OTG™) data centers in Norway and three (3) HE-OTG™ data centers in Finland, with each site consisting of a minimum capacity of 250MW. Having a total initially contracted capacity of up to 3GW of distributed energy and capacity, designed to achieve a PUE below 1.1, these six (6) locations represent the largest and only deployment of the most cost effective and hyper-efficient data centers with co-located direct hybrid power on the globe, thereby creating a fully integrated facility, while eliminating the requirement to draw power from the already over-utilized and under-capacity electrical grids as a primary source of power. PSGN and ADG have both established their corporate offices for the Nordic and European Regions within the municipality of Fredrikstad, Norway.
Each of these locations will consist of a state-of-the-art, technically advanced, highly-efficient and optimally secured data center with a collocated hybrid natural gas fired co-generation or tri-generation power plant providing first tier power production. Added features will include the highest levels of emission control, carbon capture, CO2 reduction, and thermal energy reuse by both the data center facility and the surrounding municipality and/or District heating/cooling systems as needed. To further enhance the already efficient and clean power production, while further decreasing the carbon footprint, the power plant will be combined with advanced technology battery storage and a photovoltaic system, specifically engineered for the power needs of the ancillary facility operations.
As long-term members of the communities in which their facilities are developed, PSGN and ADG believe that stewardship of the environment is critical to the creation of beneficial commercial development. By blending their facilities into the surroundings through unique design elements and features, as well as direct community involvement, they focus on not only meeting the needs of their clients, but also going above and beyond by giving back to their host municipalities and regions, be that in the form of job creation, educational assistance, selective sports venue development, vertical gardens or other agriculture product advancement, with the reuse of captured CO2 and thermal energy playing a very crucial role in our giving back programs.
All excess power will be sold directly to Energi Salg Norge AS in Norway and Energia Soumi Oy in Finland to help meet the shortfalls in capacity realized within those regions annually. In addition, PSGN and ADG are also in discussions with their energy partners for HE-OTG™ installations within Poland, The Baltics, Denmark and Germany, with further announcements to come.
Making the Nordics Greener, even in the Winter!!!
Formal meetings at the former Royal Palace of Norway at Hafslund Manor, located near the City Center of Sarpsborg, Norway. Extremely productive meetings providing introductions and solidification of the U.S. andNordic "interconnections" of Power Systems Group International, Inc., Power Systems Group Norway AS and the Asgard Development Group AS and our Nordic partners. Cheers and Skål !!!
