Norway poised to become a subsea powerhouse
Norway is seeing a flurry of interest from cable operators, data centre operators and OTT players, who are keen to find new routes into Scandinavia and Europe. The country is becoming an increasingly prominent player in the subsea sector thanks to its role as a power generation hub. Speaking at the Submarine Networks EMEA event in London, Dag Aanensen, chief technology officer at No-UK Com As, said that Norway’s role in the subsea sector was growing all the time. “With growing power restrictions in some European centres, and with Norway being the battery of Europe, building cables through Norway makes more and more sense. The country has offshore wind farms, hydro-electric power and of course significant oil and gas plays and the Southwest of Norway is the heart of the country’s power sector.” NO-UK Com As, is launching the England Cable, which will connect the UK to Norway via a 713 km cable running between Stavanger and Newcastle.
