Manatua consortium confirms One Polynesia cable ready for service

Thursday 23 July 2020 | 09:49 CET | News
The announcement follows three years of planning, design, cable manufacture, and cable laying. Since completing the cable lay in January this year, the focus has been on commissioning and testing to confirm the system functions to specifications prior to handover. Manatua is a collaboration started in April 2017 with the signing of an international treaty by the President of French Polynesia, the Prime Minister of the Cook Islands, the Prime Minister of the Independent State of Samoa, and the Premier of the Government of Niue.
