Second submarine cable project: | 02 March 2020
Survey ship arrives
The ship which will carry out the inshore survey work prior to the landing of the second submarine cable in Seychelles has arrived in the country.
The survey ship, named ‘Geo Resolution’, is stationed just off the coast of Perseverance.
It is to be recalled that the Seychelles Cable Systems Co. Ltd (SCS) signed the contract with Huawei Marine Networks (HMN) for the construction of a branch on the PEACE system to connect the Seychelles in September 2018.
An integral part of this process is the undertaking of the marine survey to
establish the exact route that the cable will take to its landing point.
The landing point for the second cable is Perseverance beach.
The marine survey for the PEACE system is being undertaken by a specialised marine survey company, EGS.
