BUILD-OUT

N0R5KE VIKING our subsea cable

N0R5KE Viking is our 780Km subsea cable project between Bergen and Trondheim. The 144-fibre-cable will be the only direct link between these cities, fully independent from existing fiber routes – thus provide much needed diversity for this region abundant with cheap hydropower and land. It’ll connect Western Norway’s main centres, Data Centres, communication hubs. N0r5ke Viking will be a valuable data-transport link as new international subsea cables are being built to connect Norway directly to the US, UK, Ireland and Denmark with low latency connections to a range of large IXs.
The Norwegian Coastal Administration is in the final phase of approving the proposed N0r5ke Viking route ~ expect official approval during Q4 2020 with subsequent laying activity during 2021. Estimated RFS 1H 2021.
