On 6th July 2017, 36 delegates from the “Seminar on the Construction and Development of Submarine Optical Cable for the Countries along the Marine Silk Road”, visited SBSS’ cable ship, the Fu An and our cable depot in Wujing. The participants were from a number of Asian and African countries and consisted mainly of various government officials.
During the visit, SBSS showcased the various parts of the Wujing depot which is capable of providing bonded storage services for submarine cables, repeaters, branching units and other submersible equipment on behalf of cable owners and system suppliers. After a tour of the depot, the delegates were given a tour of the Fu An itself, including the bridge, the jointing room, the cable deck and ROV equipment.
In July we will have more than 150 people from across the submarine telecommunications industry visiting the SBSS facilities, and we are looking forward to showing them our depot and our ships, and how SBSS help to connect the world!
