completed its marine survey for the Maldives Sri Lanka Cable (MSC) system, connecting Hulhumale, an island in the Maldives archipelago, to Mount Lavinia in Sri Lanka. The survey captured the bathymetric and seabed composition information needed to finalize route engineering and installation methods. The MSC system will be 840km long, and equipped with HMN’s high output titanium housing repeaters at a water depth of 3,700m to provide a reliable regional telecommunications network. Abdulla Firaq, director networks of Dhivehi Raajjeyge Gulhun PLC, commented: “The completion of the marine survey is the result of the concerted efforts of each member in the delivery team. We continue to work closely with [the] HMN team throughout the subsea plant manufacturing and system integration phases.” MS Tanwar, chief technology and information officer of Ooredoo Maldives PLC, said: “We believe that the MSC system will be delivered as scheduled, and it will provide our customers in both countries with a fast and reliable international connectivity experience.” The MSC is scheduled for completion by the end of 2020.

Ta Win executive director Tan Poo Chuan said inastatement that, given the increasing reliance on electrical and electronics products among consumers and across various sectors, the group is well poised to see sustained long-term growth in demand for its cable, wire harness and AC and DC power cords.
