TE Subsea Communications (TE SubCom) has contracted Fugro to carry out a cable route survey for the proposed Havfrue cable system.
The nearly 8,179 kilometers subsea cable system is comprised of a trunk cable connecting New Jersey, USA to the Jutland Peninsula of Denmark with a branch landing in County Mayo, Ireland. Optional branch extensions to Northern and Southern Norway are also included in the design.
TE SubCom, a TE Connectivity company, has signed a system supplier contract for the Havfrue cable system with a consortium including Aqua Comms, Bulk Infrastructure, Facebook, and others.
Aqua Comms, the Irish cable owner/operator will serve as the system operator and landing party in USA, Ireland, and Denmark. Bulk Infrastructure of Norway will be the owner and landing party for the Norwegian branch options.
The survey is scheduled to start on February 8, and should be executed in four weeks using the MV Fugro Discovery.
