Nexans Starts SEAX-1 Cable Manufacture

Nexans has started the manufacturing process of the SEAX-1 (SEA Cable Exchange-1) cable at its dedicated facility in Rognan, Norway.

Nexans will manufacture and deliver 250 kilometers of subsea fiber-optic cable to Huawei Marine as prime turnkey supplier for the SEAX-1 project.

The cable system will be deployed by Huawei Marine who has specified Nexans’ 24-fiber pair unrepeated (URC-1) cable and a section of land cable.

“After the success of the last ROC project with Nexans, they were the natural choice for the SEAX-1 project. This will help our customer, Super Sea Cable, to provide robust connectivity to the region,” said Zhang Chi, deputy project director of SEAX-1.

“The SEAX-1 project confirms our long-standing relationship with Huawei Marine, who values the performance and reliability demonstrated by our URC-1 fiber-optic cable,” said Krister Granlie, Nexans executive vice president Submarine Telecom- and Special Cables System (STSC). “We look forward to boosting bandwidth in the region that will play a critical role in the continued economic development of Asia Pacific.”

Once commissioned, the system will be fully owned and operated by Super Sea Cable Networks.

SEAX-1 will connect Mersing (Malaysia), Changi (Singapore), and Batam (Indonesia).
