The initial configuration of the system will extend 555km in length with two landing stations in Pentaskhinos and Yeroskipos, Cyprus with the OCB integrated into the Poseidon system to provide a self-healing ring between the two legs. SubCom will be responsible for the engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning services for the project. Installation will take place using a SubCom Reliance-class vessel with completion slated for December 2013.
