Seabras-1 Subsea Cable System Set for August Launch
- Business & Finance
Seaborn Networks, developer-owner-operator of submarine cable systems, has completed the final splice for Seabras-1.
Seabras-1 is the only direct POP to POP submarine cable system between São Paulo (Brazil) and New York (US).
“This is a tremendous achievement for both Seaborn and Seabras-1,” said Larry Schwartz, chairman and CEO of both Seabras Group and Seaborn Networks.
Seabras-1 is owned by Seabras Group. The completion of the system is the culmination of more than five years of work and more than USD 520 million of project financing.
Seaborn operates and maintains Seabras-1 from its offices in the United States and Brazil, including Seaborn’s own network operations centers in New Jersey and Massachusetts.
According to the company, the system should be ready for service in August this year.
