Bulk Infrastructure has had two of their solutions shortlisted by the DCS Awards 2021 review panel. Bulk nominations reached the finals for Pandemic Project of the Year and for Outstanding Contribution to Sustainability and Efficiency. The winners will be determined by an open voting process and will be announced at the in-person Awards Ceremony to be held on October 28 in London.
Supported by the Data Centre Alliance and in their 11th year, the DCS Awards are designed to reward the product designers, manufacturers, suppliers, and providers operating in the data center arena. After a virtual ceremony in 2020, the awards return to their London location for 2021 for a physical, COVID-compliant event.
“It is rewarding to see our work in project design and implementation recognized as we bring high-performing sustainable digital infrastructure solutions to market,” observes Rob Elder, Vice President, Data Centers for Bulk. “Service and sustainability are powerful factors in the ICT value chain and the benefits of the Nordics are gaining prominence in enterprise and hyperscale growth and planning.”
In the DCS Project Awards category, Bulk’s nomination Unlocking Renewable Energy During Lockdown reached the finals in the Pandemic Project of the Year subcategory. The project featured a scalable, cost-effective HPC research expansion project for a UK Quant Hedge Fund that hinged on creative remote collaboration approaches amid COVID restrictions to meet the fund’s sustainability and value criteria.
In the DCS Company Awards, the company’s nomination Racing to Bring Sustainable Infrastructure to a Global Audience reached the finals in the Outstanding Contribution to Sustainability and Efficiency subcategory. The nomination highlights key elements in Bulk’s success including the clean energy benefits of Norway’s vast renewable energy supplies, and the company’s work toward “unlocking the world’s renewable energy giants” through the Leif Erikson subsea cable project that will connect sustainable infrastructure in the Nordics with comparable resources in Atlantic Canada.
Voting is open across all categories through October 15 through the DCS Awards 2021 website.
