EASSy cable construction to finish this weekend

The Ile de Batz is expected to finish the Dar es Salaam to Mombasa surface lay this afternoon. She will then retrieve the cable segment left by Ile de Sein and perform the final join of the cable (the so-called ‘final splice’), which is expected to complete on 18th April (weather allowing).

This will enable us to move into the final phase before launch – the comprehensive end-to-end testing of the EASSy system.
