Ile de Sein

Over 8,100km of the EASSy cable has now been laid, with both cable laying vessels right on schedule. The Northern ship – Ile de Sein – is currently laying cable towards the Mombasa Branching Unit, whilst the Southern ship – Ile de Batz  – is expected to arrive in Moroni, the Comores, tomorrow.

The two ends on the cable will be joined next month, when we’ll be able to start end-to-end testing of the system.
