The landing station at Swakopmund for the Google-funded Equiano subsea cable is now ready to accommodate the cable, which is due to land in the second quarter of 2022. Paratus, which is the construction and managing partner of the landing station in Namibia, this week announced that the internal fit, including power, cabling cabinets, conduits, raceways, cages, and security have been complemented in January 2022, following the completion of the station in June 2021. The Equiano subsea internet cable will run from Portugal to South Africa, along Africa’s Atlantic Ocean coastline. In 2022, it is expected to land in Lagos (Nigeria), Cape Town (South Africa), and Swakopmund. It improves the resiliency of Google’s content and services between Europe and Africa.
