TE SubCom, SSCC to Build Cable Depot in Samoa

TE SubCom together with Samoa Submarine Cable Company (SSCC), plans to construct a new depot in Port of Apia, Samoa to service and maintain more than 19 cable systems in the South Pacific region.

TE SubCom in June 2017 secured the South Pacific Marine Maintenance Agreement (SPMMA), a five-year service agreement between SubCom and 14 cable operators in the region.

The new maintenance depot in Samoa will help TE SubCom to support and maintain more than 51,000 km of telecommunications and power cable systems in the area as well as support regional installation activities, SSCC explained.

We’re grateful for the opportunity to add a world-class facility to our worldwide services, and are especially pleased to have found such a great regional partner in the Samoa Submarine Cable Company,” said James Herron, managing director Marine Operations, TE SubCom.

“We look forward to TE SubCom’s expanded presence in the region and the increased services this new depot will provide,” said Emmanuel Delanoue, CEO of Samoa Submarine Cable Company. “As we continue to expand and improve upon communication systems in the region, we look forward to working closely with SubCom.”
