Bulk Infrastructure is a leading provider of sustainable digital infrastructure in the Nordics. We are an industrial investor, developer and operator of industrial real estate, data centers and dark fiber networks. We believe in the value creation opportunity of enabling our digital society to be fully sustainable. Hence our vision: Racing to bring sustainable infrastructure to a global audience.
We own and control dark fiber infrastructure with the purpose of enabling the Nordics for large scale data processing. Our fiber infrastructure is modern with high capacity including both subsea and terrestrial systems. We can offer dark fiber to data center customers and others that want to produce bandwidth services on top of our infrastructure. Bulk considers our self as a pure infrastructure player within fiber, being a partner rather than a competitor with traditional carriers. Bulk has available thousands of km of dark fiber, including both intercontinental and intra-Nordic infrastructure that links to main European markets as well as the US. We continue to explore new subsea and terrestrial fiber routes that could be strategic enablers for the data center growth in the Nordics.
Our value proposition and fiber portfolio
Our fiber infrastructure supports large scale data processing in the Nordics. We have intra-Nordic connectivity and modern subsea fiber routes from Denmark and Norway to Ireland, UK and the US as part of our portfolio. We have deep understanding of data processing requirements and a comprehensive overview of established and planned fiber infrastructure (own and others) across the Nordics. This makes us a strong partner for discussing Nordic establishments related to digital infrastructure.
Our current dark fiber portfolio consists of subsea and terrestrial systems:
Havfrue: Bulk's Fiber Networks Team is a co-builder of a transatlantic subsea fiber cable named Havfrue between the US and Denmark with branches to Ireland and Norway, ready for service in Q4 2019. This new fiber optic cable has European landing points in Kristiansand, Norway, in Esbjerg, Denmark and Leckanvy, Ireland. Bulk is offering colocation at Havfrue` s landing stations in Kristiansand and Esbjerg. At these stations our customers will gain direct connectivity to major European and Nordic cities.
To be named: Bulk has ownership in the "TBN" fiber optic submarine cable system, linking Ireland, Isle of Man, UK and Denmark. The cable is scheduled for installation in Q4, 2019. Together with Havfrue, this subsea cable system opens possibilities for utilizing Nordics's vast surplus of renewable energy in addition to creating diverse routes to Nordic and European markets.
Skagerrak4: Bulk can offer multiple fiber pairs on the Skagerrak4 fiber cable to provide connectivity between Kristiansand, Norway and Tjele in Denmark. The Skagerrak4 cable is currently the largest fiber capacity between Norway and Denmark and it connects directly to Bulk's N01 Campus in Kristiansand. Through partners, Bulk will also be able to connect between Skagerrak4 and Bulk's Danish data center DK01 in Esbjerg.
Inter City Ring, Norway: Bulks ownership in Norways Inter-city ring connects the major cities of Norway. Oslo, Kristiansand, Stavanger and Bergen.
Other: Additionally, we have smaller terrestrial dark fiber systems, e.g., an Oslo metro ring and redundant fiber routes into our data centers.
Our fiber portfolio has been established and is being operated in partnership with multiple specialized players within terrestrial infrastructure (e.g., railroads), subsea fiber construction, communications services, network builders, large scale customers, etc. We are always looking for new partnership opportunities to build more strategic fiber routes, and we have a reputation to be fast and easy to cooperate with in complex projects like these.
