FT | European ammunition maker says plant expansion hit by energy-guzzling TikTok site, 27 Mar
Nammo, which is co-owned by the Norwegian government and a Finnish state-controlled defence company, has been told there is no surplus energy for its Raufoss plant in central Norway as a data centre that counts the social media platform as its main customer is using up the electricity in the region.

"We are concerned because we see our future growth is challenged by the storage of cat videos," Morten Brandtzæg, Nammo chief executive, told the Financial Times.
