Submarine Cable Laying to Connect Egypt, the Middle East, etc.


Recently, Telecom Egypt announced that it will sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with three communications companies in the UAE, Indonesia, and India to form an international alliance to establish a submarine cable laying project.

This collaborative project will connect data centers in several countries, starting from Southeast Asia and India, all the way to the Middle East and Egypt, using new, unique, and diverse international paths for information data transmission.

Why can only submarine AC cables be used for long-distance submarine power transmission?

xlpe subsea cable company

The fundamental reason: the capacitive current of AC cables limits their transmission distance. This is for long-distance submarine projects, the transmission of large power is very difficult. Submarine DC cable has no capacitive current, transmission capacity is not limited by distance. So only a DC cable can be used to transmit power.

From the beginning of last year until now, the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and so on broke out one after another. In these wars and conflicts, aerial cables, concentric cables, submarine cables and so on all play different degrees of important role.

Chilean Government and Google Announce Partnership to Build First Submarine Cable Connecting South America to Asia-Pacific


Chilean President Gabriel Borich delivered a speech on the construction of submarine fiber optic cable at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) CEO Summit on November 15, 2023, in San Francisco, California.

The Chilean government on Wednesday (January 10) announced a partnership with Alphabet’s Google to build the first-ever undersea cable route directly connecting South America and the Asia-Pacific region. The submarine cable line is named “Humboldt”.

According to a Chilean government press release, Humboldt will connect the central Chilean port city of Valparaiso to Sydney, Australia, via 14,800 kilometers (9,200 miles) of fiber optic cable through French Polynesia. The capacity is 144 terabytes (TB) and the service life is 25 years.

What are the Commonly Used Models of Overhead Aluminum Cables?


Overhead Aluminum Cables act as a conduit for the transmission of electricity, transmitting different voltage levels across various distances, environments, and landscapes to provide power where it is needed.

Powerline cables are structurally supported by poles or steel towers designed to keep the wires at a safe height.

This ensures that there is sufficient ground clearance to minimize the risk of interference or damage to live power lines.

So do you know about overhead power lines?
