The 700-kilometre-long high-capacity cable will be connecting the west coast of Norway with Newcastle in England and is expected to be in operation in Q4 2021. NO-UK is part of a wider network of existing submarine and terrestrial (in-land) cables operated by Altibox Carrier, which will connect Newcastle with Norway, Ireland, mainland Europe and ultimately the US.

A multi-discipline team from Kluge Advokatfirma AS has advised NO-UK COM, including Snorre Haukali and Espen Debes (corporate), Kjetil Stensvik and Camilla Grytten (contracts), Anders Heieren (tax), Axel Naustdal Cooper (VAT) and Dag Thomas Hanson (financing).
