Senegal: Orange Marine Deploys MainOne Cable Branches To Dakar (Senegal) and Abidjan (Côte d’Ivoire)

On 31 August 2019, the MainOne Cable Company confirmed that an Orange Marine cable laying ship was in the process of deploying branches from the MainOne submarine cable system to additional landing points in Dakar (Senegal) and Abidjan (Cote d’Ivoire). According to a company press release, MainOne confirmed that the cable is scheduled to land in Dakar in September 2019, and in Abidjan in October 2019. The cable landing stations have already been built in both Dakar and Abidjan and are ready for installation of equipment, and the commercial launch of the system is scheduled for November 2019.

In September 2018, Orange and MainOne signed an agreement for the construction and installation of these two new branches and landing points in Dakar and Abidjan (see Senegal: Orange And MainOne Sign Agreement To Land The MainOne Cable In Dakar). Through this partnership Orange will acquire multiple Tbps of additional capacity on the MainOne cable, according to a company press release. Orange will be the owner of the cable station in Dakar. In April 2018, MainOne announced that it has obtained a licence in Côte d’Ivoire (see Côte d’Ivoire: MainOne To Land Submarine Cable In Côte d’Ivoire). Orange Marine, a 100% subsidiary of the Orange Group, has been chosen to manage the installation of these two new branches.
