We assume that our almost eternal perspective on wind- and hydro-power production would benefit a hyperscale data center investor as a reliable partner. Furthermore, our hyperscale facilitator team gives us the advantage of having access to an enormous pool of expertise within the international Statkraft organization, with long-term commitment in large scale projects in our genes.
