EGS Completes Survey of Coral Sea Cable

EGS has wrapped up geophysical survey of Coral Sea Cable System connecting Sydney to PNG and Solomon Island.

The RV Northern Endeavour recently returned to Honia, marking the completion of its trip to Auki, Noro and Taro.

According to EGS, the vessel has been in Solomon waters for close to a month, working in collaboration with a team of onshore experts to map the route for the Coral Sea Cable System and the Solomon Islands Domestic Network.

Preliminary findings from the survey team indicate that the Coral Sea Cable, linking Sydney to Honiara will be approximately 3,759 kilometers long.

The Solomon Islands Domestic Network will traverse approximately 722 kilometers across the Solomon Islands seafloor, delivering internet to Malaita, Western and Choiseul provinces.

Completion of the marine survey means the project can now move to the next phase. Alcatel Submarine Networks will manufacture the cable in France in accordance with the specifications from the survey.

The cables should be ready for service by the end of 2019.
