The second piece of the Havhingsten news from the Irish and North Seas dropped on Friday from Aqua Comms. The subsea network operator has officially launched two intra-European subsea cable systems: CeltixConnect-2 and North Sea Connect. The two cable systems are Aqua Comms’ piece of the Havhingsten system whose completion was announced by partner Bulk Infrastructure and Meta last week.
CC-2 is the company’s second cable across the Irish Sea, landing in Dublin and Blackpool with branches to the Island of Man. Meanwhile, NSC connects NewCastle in northeastern England with Blaabjerg on the coast of Denmark. It complements Aqua Comm’s AEC-1 and AEC-2 transatlantic cables, which themselves connect the NY/NJ metro region in the USA to Ireland and Denmark.
Aqua Comms is also working on another transatlantic cable between Boston and Slough/London as well as drawing up plans for connectivity from Marseilles to Mumbai. The company was bought by Digital 9 Infrastructure last year, giving the company access to potentially greater resources for future expansion projects.
