Hawaiki Subsea Cable Route Survey Underway

Hawaiki Submarine Cable LP and TE SubCom, a TE Connectivity company, have launched a marine route survey of Hawaiki, the 14,000 km transpacific cable system.

Hawaiki will link Australia and New Zealand to the mainland United States, as well as Hawaii, with options to expand to several South Pacific islands.

Each stage of this groundbreaking project is important, but after very carefully planning our transpacific route and conducting an extensive survey of each landing site, we are extremely pleased to launch the marine route survey, which will give us data necessary to safely and properly deploy the system in the coming months,” said Remi Galasso, chief executive officer of Hawaiki. “The team is doing a great job; we are on time and on budget. We are confident that with our trusted supplier, TE SubCom, our cable will be delivered as planned in mid-2018, less than two years from now.”

“Before deploying a cable system, a marine route survey is conducted to gather the geophysical and geotechnical data needed to ensure the cable is buried safely and securely,” said Aaron Stucki, president of TE SubCom.

The 14,000 km cable system will deliver more than 30 Tbps of capacity via TE SubCom’s C100U+ submarine line terminating equipment (SLTE) and will allow for optional connectivity to islands along the route, utilizing TE SubCom’s optical add/drop multiplexing (OADM) nodes, the company explained.

The cable is scheduled for completion in mid-2018.
