Press Release
Monday, March 25, 2013

TE SubCom, a TE Connectivity Ltd. company was contracted by Ocean Specialists, Inc. (OSI) as the supplier of the Poseidon project, a high-capacity undersea cable system that will enable advanced communications for the oil and gas industry in the Eastern Mediterranean region.

Designed to deliver communication to an active region for oil and gas production, Poseidon will be owned and operated by Radius Oceanic Communications, Inc. (Radius), a wholly owned subsidiary of OSI.  The initial anchor tenant for Poseidon will be the Offshore Communications Backbone (OCB), previously installed by TE SubCom under contract to OSI in 2010. The OCB is an existing Ocean Observatory System owned and operated by CSnet International, Inc. (CSnet) that provides broadband oceanographic, meteorological, and hydrographic data services to science, government and industry. 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.
