DigiPlex, a Norwegian provider of sustainable colocation data centers, has opened its fifth data center in Norway. The new colocation data center is located in Holtskogen Business Park at Hobøl in Indre Østfold. DigiPlex now operates seven data centers located in Norway, Sweden and Denmark.
This DigiPlex property comprises 40,000 square meters at Holtskogen Business Park with an option for a further 27,000 sqm. The new DigiPlex Hobøl data center is 3,200 square meter and built to support 6 MW.
This announcement marks the first stage in the development of a data center campus at the site. There are two additional data centers planned to meet growing demand. The expansion program is partly financed through a fully subscribed NOK 655 million (about $80M) bond issue that will be listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange this fall.
The quick buildout of DigiPlex’s data center portfolio would underline its ability to deliver against the high demands for speed, resource, and capability that international customers have when considering build-out in new regions.

Power, Connectivity, Location
The location at Holtskogen offers ample access to power, a high level of connectivity, and expansion possibilities. Its closeness to Oslo would make it a perfect location for both international hyperscalers and Nordic enterprises. Through DigiPlex’ Nordic Connect Platform, customers will also be able to operate dual site solutions across DigiPlex Nordic portfolio.
“In less than a month, DigiPlex has opened two new data centers in Norway,” said Wiljar Nesse, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of DigiPlex. “Our new data center at Holtskogen will be our seventh facility in the Nordics, serving a steadily increasing demand from both our enterprise customers as well as from the largest IT companies in the world, so-called ‘hyperscalers’, looking to capitalize on the advantages of placing their data centers in the Nordics.”
