ACMA entrusts SFN to deliver new communications portal
26th November 2012, Dublin, Ireland - Sea Fibre Networks (SFN), owner and operator of Europe’s most advanced sub-sea telecoms network, CeltixConnect, today announced its selection to oversee the newly developed and upgraded Atlantic Cable Maintenance and Repair Agreement (ACMA) website. ACMA operates one of the largest dedicated marine fleets in the world and is responsible for the maintenance and repair for over 60 of the largest sub-sea telecoms, power, oil and gas organisations in the world.
Following on from a long honoured tradition amongst the ACMA members, SFN is delighted to have been selected from a group of prestigious sub-sea providers to spearhead the development and new direction of this vital resource. The ACMA website is an essential communications tool for members such as Cable & Wireless, Hibernia Atlantic, Verizon and SFN who depend on real time access to information regarding vessel locations and maintenance agreements. ACMA selected SFN from amongst its 60+ specialised sub-sea operators, following in the footsteps of previous members who managed the site. SFN joined ACMA at the start of 2012 as part of their pro-active cable operations and maintenance programme for CeltixConnect, the most modern cable system connecting Ireland to the UK.
Diane Hodnett, Sea Fibre Networks’ CEO, said: “ACMA’s continued success at the forefront of the sub-sea cable maintenance and repair industry is linked to its ability to deliver a modern communications service to its members and Sea Fibre Networks are delighted to be leading this project.”
Alasdair Wilkie, ACMA Chairman, said: “As one of the newest entrants to the sub-sea community, ACMA was delighted with the selection of Sea Fibre Networks to preside over this innovative development.”
