[Changshu, Nov 20, 2020] PEACE announced that the first cable loading for Mediterranean Segment ( PEACE Med) has been successfully achieved. The freighter Sophia is going to Brest, France in the morning of November 21.
On November 13, PEACE Med started the loading operations. A certain amount of skilled personnel such as cable hands and stevedores were arranged in the cable factory, along the loading line and onboard the vessel to guarantee the accurate coiling of the cable in the tanks and storage of the repeaters in the stack due to the complexity of submarine cable loading. Meanwhile, testers were involved throughout the whole loading process and the entire operation was under the management of loading manager. After 7 days of efforts, the first batch of PEACE Med cable was loaded on board.
The freighter Sophia is currently sailing towards Brest, France, where the cable and repeaters will be transferred to main-lay vessel of Pierre de Fermat for laying.
The successful loading of PEACE MED System provides assurances for the commercial service of the PEACE system as planned for 2021. Once PEACE operates, the new information superhighway connecting China, Europe and Africa is ready with the lowest latency and high-capacity bandwidth.
Bruce Liu, Vice President of Sales & Marketing of the PEACE cable system, stressed that " Thanks to the continuous efforts and support of our partners in the last several months. We are honored to announce the first loading of PEACE MED has been completed. As a milestone event, this successful loading will provide an important guarantee for the commercial use of the PEACE system in 2021. And we believe that PEACE will soon enable direct long-term interconnectivity between three continents to meet the rapid needs of the communities as scheduled."
