Submarine fibre optic cable system project


VP Faure

The manufacturing of the cable by the Alcatel-Lucent, an international France-based company, has been completed and Mr Faure is in the port of Calais to witness the cable being loaded on the ship Ile de la Seine en route for Seychelles.

Also present in Calais are the financial partners for the Seas project, the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the Europe Investment Bank (EIB), as well as the two other shareholders, Cable & Wireless and Airtel.
The submarine cable will come into operation in mid 2012.
