TE SubCom Increases Cable Manufacturing Capacity
TE SubCom has increased capacity throughput of cable manufacturing at its wet plant factory by 50 percent.
In addition, the company has expanded its marine fleet capability to include a sixth 3-meter plow, providing 3-meter burial tools across the entire construction fleet.
SubCom achieved a 50 percent increase in capacity throughput through an upgrade to its existing power conductor manufacturing lines, as well as the addition of new lines. This additional infrastructure will become fully operational later this year, allowing the company to expand on more than 610,000 km of its undersea cable installed worldwide to date.
“As we look at the submarine cable industry and how people and businesses will interact with technology in the future, SubCom continues to make strategic investments to support our customers and help their businesses grow,” said Aaron Stucki, president, TE SubCom. “By investing in our technology, operations, expert employees, and expanding our service options, SubCom is able to deliver high-quality, flexible and affordable systems to meet the specific needs of our customers now and in the future.”
