TE SubCom and the Samoa Submarine Cable Company (SSCC) announced that a new submarine cable depot will be built in the Port of Apia, Samoa, to service and maintain some 20 cable systems in the South Pacific region.

In 2017, TE SubCom was awarded the South Pacific Marine Maintenance Agreement (SPMMA), a five-year agreement between it and 15 regional cable operators, a press release said. The new depot, to be owned by TE SubCom, will help support and maintain more than 51,000 km of telecom and power cable systems in the area, as well as support regional installation activities. The SPMMA area covers the South Pacific region from Singapore in the west to Tahiti in the east and from the southernmost point of New Zealand to Hawaii in the north.
