Huawei Marine, Tropical Science Begin PEACE Subsea Cable Work

Huawei Marine has, in conjunction with Tropical Science, started work on desk study and marine survey for the construction of the Pakistan East Africa Cable Express (PEACE) submarine cable.

The cable, with a total length of 13,000km, will connect South Asia (Pakistan) and East Africa (Djibouti) and Kenya, with a northern expansion to Egypt and further southern expansion from Kenya to South Africa.

With initial work underway, the project is targeted for completion in Q4, 2019.

The project will facilitate connectivity from China to Pakistan via existing terrestrial cable networks and create the shortest route from China to Europe via Africa.

Mao Shengjiang, COO of Huawei Marine said: “We are pleased to commence work on this important project to ensure a timely delivery programme. Our customer-centric focus and commitment to quality and on-time delivery, is a hallmark of our company values. I would like to thank Tropical Science and our other partners for their trust in Huawei Marine.”
