The Australia Singapore Cable lay is complete

On Monday 23rd July, Vocus announced that the cable laying phase of the Australia Singapore Cable (ASC) system is complete, with the final splice having been completed south-east of Singapore.

Vocus Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Kevin Russell recognised the significance of the milestone.

“I’m thrilled to have reached this very important point which is a testament to the very positive and cohesive relationships between our project team and the team from Alcatel Submarine Networks (ASN),” said Kevin.

Kevin highlighted that the overall project was progressing at an excellent pace with very pleasing results.

“This final leg from Christmas Island to Singapore presented the greatest engineering and technical challenges and it’s a great credit to the team that we on track in final configuration phase,” said Kevin.

“We’re very appreciative of the great work that has been completed by Alcatel Submarine Networks and look forward to working with them on the other side of the Pacific for the recently announced Coral Sea Cable System.”
