Agreement to make subsea connection between the U.S and India signed
This unique path connecting the U.S. with three BRICS countries and Mauritius will provide the most secure and reliable route between these markets by providing fewer hops through fewer countries than existing alternative routes.
Seaborn is the developer-owner-operator of: Seabras-1, the most direct subsea system between New York - São Paulo; ARBR, the only new direct subsea system planned to be built between Brazil - Argentina (RFS Q4 2018); and SABR, a new subsea system between Cape Town, South Africa and Seabras-1 (RFS 2019).
IOX is the developer of the IOX Cable System, the first next-generation subsea network interconnecting South Africa, Mauritius and India (RFS 2019).
IOX have commenced work for the cable route survey, and once completed will provide a direct route between South Africa and India via Mauritius. Seaborn's SABR and the IOX System will interconnect in South Africa.
The Seabras-1 + SABR + IOX System route will be available exclusively through Seaborn and IOX. Customers can contract through either Seaborn or IOX to receive the full benefits of this alliance. ■
