Bulk has broken ground on a new data center in Norway.

The company this week announced construction has commenced on a 42MW data center at the N01 Data Center Campus in Kristiansand, southern Norway. The new building is scheduled for completion later this year.

The facility will offer 42MW of IT space and include both air cooling and direct liquid cooling capabilities of up to 100kW+ per rack.

“The rapid growth in occupancy at the N01 Data Center Campus underscores the undeniable demand for highly scalable, cost-effective, and sustainable solutions,” said Gisle M. Eckhoff, EVP, Bulk Data Centers at Bulk Infrastructure. “The success of our strategic approach is reflected in the trust from our owners and partners, which will help us to build data centers of the future that meet the demands of our growing customer base.”

Construction on N01 first began back in 2014. Bulk previously launched a 12MW data center facility at the N01 Data Center Campus last year; the company said that facility is now fully contracted.

Bulk said it will undertake the preparation of a further 300,000 sqm (3.23m sq ft) at the 300-hectare site to facilitate future expansion of the data center facilities – in addition to the 265,000 sqm (2.85m sq ft) of land currently leveled and construction-ready – to accommodate future demand.

Bulk is working jointly with regional and national grid companies to add 300MW of additional, redundant power capacity to the campus.

The N01 Data Center Campus reportedly has the potential to grow beyond 1000MW.

Bulk also operates the OS-IX facility in Oslo, and has a site in Esbjerg, Denmark.
