Bulk Fiber Networks, the Nordic’s leading provider of ultra-scalable, highly connected, sustainable digital infrastructure and fiber networks, has completed construction of the HAVSIL submarine cable express route between Kristiansand, Norway and Hanstholm, Denmark. Installation began on September 5th and took about 10 days to complete. The HAVSIl route will be the shortest route connecting Norway to continental Europe and is selected to serve as the new secure main fiber route for Norway’s international data traffic, according to the Norwegian Communications Authority.
HAVSIL will carry up to 30% of Norway’s international data traffic. The HAVSIL route with 192 fibers is fully buried on the seabed for protection and reliability and will be the only cable in the region with modern neutral data centers at both end points. This latest express route between Bulk’s data center campuses N01 in Kristiansand and DK01 in Esbjerg will enable greater use of surplus 100% renewable energy data centers in the South of Norway and improve connectivity and capacity between Norway and continental Europe.
