REPAIR VESSEL HAS BEGUN REPAIRS ON THE SECOND SEACOM SUBSEA CABLE MARINE FAULT IN THE RED SEA – 19 May 13:00 GMT
The repair vessel has arrived at the second marine fault area identified in the Red Sea north of the first fault off Djibouti, and is in the process of beginning repair work. Given that the nature of the fault issue is not known until the cable has been retrieved and inspected, SEACOM can only estimate repair timelines. We estimate the SEACOM subsea cable could be down for 3 days during this repair window.
SEACOM continues to monitor the situation closely and will provide necessary updates as warranted.
