Vocus has installed Coral Sea cable system at the landing sites at both Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands.

The company is building the 4,700km Coral Sea cable system for the Australian Government.

In addition, on Monday, a ceremony featuring a symbolic handover of a ‘golden buoy’ was held in the Solomon Islands, to mark the beginning of work to lay the cable between Honiara and Sydney.

The ceremony followed an official tour of the cable-laying ship, the Ile de Brehat on Friday, by the Deputy Prime Minister, the Hon John Maneniaru, Acting High Commissioner Sally-Anne Vincent and other senior representatives.

“The project is a large scale and complex submarine cable build and is making excellent progress.

“Together with our partners, we’re very proud of our role in building critical infrastructure for the people, businesses and communities of Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands.

“We’re also very proud of the expertise in fibre networks and large-scale project management we have at Vocus, and the strong relationships we have with the Australian Government agencies and stakeholders involved,” the company said.

The Coral Sea cable system and the Solomon Islands domestic network are on track to be ready for service by December 2019.
