Huawei, EGS Launch PEACE Project Marine Survey

Marine survey for PEACE (Pakistan & East Africa Connecting Europe) subsea cable project is now underway, Huawei Marine said on Wednesday.

The PEACE submarine cable system will connect Pakistan, Djibouti, Kenya, Egypt, and other countries along the Red Sea with a total system length of 8,800 kilometers.

The project was signed in November 2017, and is expected to be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Huawei Marine is working with its long-term partner EGS to conduct a hydrographic and geophysical survey of the seabed along the planned cable route.

EGS’ specialized survey vessel the RV Ridley Thomas, has arrived in the region to begin offshore survey operations.

Zhang Hongxiang, project director for Huawei Marine, said: “Implementation of the PEACE project has reached another important milestone which is testment to our project delivery capabilities as Huawei Marine continues to provide efficient, high-quality network solutions for our customers. Our 200G WDM technology that will be deployed in the PEACE cable system will support the rapid development of the East African regional economy and facilitate connectivity between Asia, Africa and Europe.”

Chris Welsh, CEO of EGS Survey Group, stated: “It is a great honor for us to participate in the PEACE submarine cable system project and work once again in partnership with Huawei Marine. EGS brings more than 25 years of extensive cable route survey experience and adheres to the highest professional standards. We are delighted to contribute to the construction of the new information highway.”
