Hibernia Express builds trans-oceanic cables with Vertiv

October 31, 2018

Hibernia Networks selected Vertiv as its partner to design and build two fully integrated cable landing stations on each side of the Atlantic Ocean based on our experience, expertise, and deployment speed.

SmartMod Cable Landing Station

The Customer

Hibernia Networks was a privately held, US-owned provider of telecommunication services. It was acquired by GTT Communications in January 2017.

The Challenge

The Hibernia Express is a 4,600 km, 6-pair transatlantic cable system that connects North America and Europe through landing ports in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Brean, England and Cork, Ireland. The customer needed a partner with a good understanding of harsh oceanfront environments and proven ability to deliver efficient, reliable cooling systems under such conditions to build their cable landing stations to connect the Hibernia Express.

The Solution

Hibernia Networks selected Vertiv to design and build several prefabricated modules that can be assembled onsite to meet local requirements in Canada and United Kingdom – the two global landing spots for Hibernia Express.

The cable landing stations were complete in only seven months from the onset of work, enabling Hibernia Express to deliver the absolute lowest latency and additional high-performing capacity to its customers on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.

Case Summary

Capacity: 10.16 Tbits/s; <60ms latency

Technology Supplier: TE Subcom

Vertiv Solutions:

  • Liebert DSE and Liebert PDX thermal management units
  • High-efficiency DC Power with secure remote monitoring/control
  • Inverters, VRLA batteries and other support infrastructure


  • Vertiv delivered efficient, reliable cooling systems under harsh oceanfront
    conditions based on expertise from past deployments.
  • Both sites were designed to achieve the industry’s highest standards for
    energy efficiency and power usage effectiveness.
  • Concurrent deployments were completed seven months from the start of
    work, more than 40% faster than the typical deployment time for
    traditional brick-and-mortar facilities.
