Submarine Telecom Cable Solutions (NSW)


Bringing new depth to data and communications

The transmission of data and communications has long stretched beyond the confines of the land. In response to an ever-growing requirement for telecommunications to be transmitted across oceans, Prysmian has expanded its reach to once again become a world leader.

Experience, Innovation and Service

Prysmian acquired the submarine telecom business, formerly known as NSW, with the acquisition of General Cable in 2018 maintaining its centre of excellence in Nordenham (Germany). The experience in manufacturing submarine cable set its roots in 1899, laying the first transatlantic submarine telecommunication cable in 1904, approximately 7,993 kilometers in length.

Prysmian offers fibre-optic submarine cables, accessories and associated services to investors and world-leading network operators, who are increasingly opting for the point-to-point or turnkey approach. They recognise that, by placing the entire project in the hands of a qualified expert, the risks that result from a lack of submarine project management experience are avoided, and time to market is brought down to a minimum.

The increasing complexity of data transmission requirements (platform-to-platform, platform-to-subsea control system and platform-to-shore), challenging technologies like ‘free-floating’ platforms or sub-sea exploration, and the need for higher levels of system reliability, have resulted in the development of new telecommunication system solutions for the offshore industry.
