Bulk Data Centers, one of the Nordics’ leading data center providers delivering ultra flexible, scalable, highly connected and sustainable solutions, recently announced that it has expanded its capacity in Southern Norway with the addition of 3MW of critical power in its N01 data center campus. With this expansion, the company delivers strategic capacity to support both new and existing customers in the UK and beyond that are looking to support High Performance Computing (HPC) needs and other requirements. Supplementing Bulk’s existing high-density, high-availability, low total cost of ownership data center solutions, this new capacity has been designed to deliver power and cooling for 30kW racks and was provisioned and ready for service within 4 months. With this expansion, Bulk underscores its scalability, agility and dedication to comprehensively meeting the evolving demands of its customers. 

“At its core, Bulk understands the necessity of listening to our customers, understanding their individual needs and delivering solutions that address those needs to the fullest extent,” says Jon Gravråk, Chief Executive Officer, Bulk Infrastructure Group. “This expansion is tailored for specific customer needs addressing the latest high density HPC solutions. We are seeing increased demand for our N01 Campus where customers benefit from the lowest Total Cost of Operations in Europe taking advantage of the direct connection to 100% carbon free energy and will have more announcements soon. We look forward to matching our customers’ exciting growth trajectories, expanding and evolving to continue serving as a long-term, trusted Nordic IT partner.” 

The N01 campus is located on a 300ha site with up to 1GW of renewable power and is strategically placed in the lowest-cost energy region of Norway. The location delivers key advantages to tenants as a result of its proximity to Europe’s largest renewable substation (which features a capacity of 3.6GW). Supported by more than 12 independent feeds, the data center facility ensures tenants benefit from reliable uptime for even their highest availability needs and most demanding performance-oriented workloads. N01 also provisions carrier-neutral, high-capacity fiber connectivity to the U.S. and Europe. 

Having secured a new contract for fiber connectivity earlier this year with Telia Carrier — and factoring in the overall area’s growth in international and regional fiber systems — Bulk is ideally positioned to capitalize on and build upon Southern Norway’s growing reputation as a key location for both sustainable digital solutions and crucial connectivity. 

Bulk continues its dedication to serving as a strategic partner in this region, taking the sustainability and business value of the Nordic data center to the next level. Offering green-powered data center locations that offer enhanced power resilience, scalability and flexibility, Bulk Data Centers ensures that even the highest density workloads are supported by the utmost availability, cost efficiency and responsiveness.
