Nexans’ Subsea Cables to Connect Cameroon and Brazil

Nexans has been awarded a contract from Huawei Marine Networks to supply 6000 km of their submarine repeatered optical cables (ROC) for Phase II of the National Broadband Network (NBNII) project linking Cameroon and Brazil.

The cable system will be manufactured and tested at Nexans’ Rognan factory in Norway with the delivery scheduled for the end of 2017.

In 2015, Nexans in partnership with Huawei Marine delivered the Nigeria Cameroon Submarine Cable System (NCSCS) which constituted Phase I of National Broadband Network being developed for Camtel, Cameroon’s national telecom company.

Krister Granlie, executive vice president, Hybrid Underwater Cables at Nexans said, “This contract cements the new era of submarine fibre solutions (SFS) for Nexans, and reinforces our long relationship with Huawei Marine Networks.”

“We have worked in close partnership with Nexans extensively since our inception in 2008, and after the success of Phase I of this National Broadband Network roll-out, they were the natural choice for Phase II, our first trans-Atlantic project,” said Mike Constable, chief executive, Huawei Marine Networks.
