In January 2018 it was announced that Bulk Infrastructure would be one of the co-builders of the new trans-Atlantic cable HAVFRUE and it would also be the owner and landing party for the Norwegian branch to the system.

The agreement covers termination points in the New Jersey Fiber Exchange (NJFX), in Wall New Jersey, USA, Dublin, Ireland, and Bulk’s facilities at both the N01 Campus in Southern Norway and their facility in Western Denmark.

The new HAVFRUE subsea cable will be ready for service in the fourth quarter of 2019.

It is a testament to our company that Amazon Web Services have entered into this agreement with us for a significant portion of our trans-Atlantic subsea cable network. Having their presence on our core infrastructure will also open new opportunities for both companies. This agreement also recognizes our commitment to enable the great potential that the Nordic region has to offer as an attractive platform for cost efficient and sustainable digital services. In turn, we are excited to see AWS’s continued commitment to the region – with the December launch of the AWS Europe (Stockholm) Region, numerous Edge locations throughout the Nordics, and the recent news that they will open offices in Oslo, Norway. We believe our infrastructure will drive further interest in our Nordic proposition and capabilities,” said Peder Naerboe, founder and owner of Bulk Infrastructure.
