Thursday 23 April 2020 | 11:13 CET | News
OPT New Caledonia (OPT-NC) has selected ASN (Alcatel Submarine Network) for the construction and installation of the Gondwana-2 subsea cable linking New Caledonia to Fiji. The operator launched the tender process for the new international cable a year ago, to provide additional network capacity and resilience alongside the existing Gondwana-1 cable system, which connects New Caledonia to Australia. The five-year contract with ASN is worth XPF 4.47 billion (circa EUR 37.5 million) and the work is due for completion in early 2022.
