Bulk Data Centers announced that it has expanded its capacity in Southern Norway, adding 3MW of critical power to its N01 data center. This latest expansion delivers additional capacity for new and existing customers in the UK and beyond seeking to support High Performance Computing (HPC) needs and other requirements with Bulk’s high-density, high-availability, low total cost of ownership data center solutions. The additional capacity has been designed to deliver power and cooling for 30kW racks and was provisioned and ready for service within 4 months.
The N01 Norway data center campus, located on a 300ha site with up to 1GW of renewable power, offers key advantages to tenants due to its location in the lowest-cost energy region of Norway and its proximity to Europe's largest renewable substation (with a capacity of 3.6GW). Supported by over 12 independent feeds, the facility delivers reliable uptime for the highest availability needs and highest performance workload demands. N01 also offers access to carrier-neutral, high-capacity fiber connectivity to the U.S. and Europe. With this expansion, Bulk underscores its scalability, agility and dedication to comprehensively meeting the evolving demands of its customers.
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.”

Bulk continues to serve as a strategic partner in the 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 even the highest density workloads run with the utmost availability, cost efficiency and responsiveness.
