Bulk Data Centers has expanded its capacity in Southern Norway, adding 3MW of critical power to its N01 data centre.

The company said the latest expansion delivers additional capacity for new and existing customers in the UK and beyond who wish to support High Performance Computing (HPC) needs and other requirements.

The additional capacity has been designed to deliver power and cooling for 30kW racks and was provisioned and ready for service within four months.

“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,” said 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 N01Norway data centre campus, located on a 300ha site with up to 1GW of renewable power, is set to offer advantages to tenants due to its location in a low-cost energy region in Norway.

Southern Norway is becoming a key location for both sustainable digital solutions and vital connectivity, according to the company, following Bulk’s contract for fibre connectivity secured earlier this year with Telia Carrier.

The company said it plans to continue serving as a strategic partner in the region, to elevate the sustainability and business value of the Nordic data centre.

Bulk offers green-powered data centre locations that propose enhanced power resilience.
