After the partnership with Norwegian Lobster Farm, Green Mountain partnered with Hima Seafood to reuse waste heat from the data center in the world's largest land-based trout farm. Construction will start this year and when fully operational in 2023, the waste heat will be used in the production of 9,000 tons of trout annually. Both energy consumption and carbon footprint will be significantly reduced in this sustainable project.
Heat exchanger technology will then ensure that the Hima facility can use the energy from the water to obtain the correct water temperature in their RAS solution. The same water is subsequently returned to Green Mountain. The water now holds a lower temperature which can be used in the cooling of the data center, creating a truly circular project.
