Pioneer Consulting supervises undersea cable system relocation

Pioneer Consulting has supervised the relocation of two shore-ends for the telecommunications service provider Dhivehi Raajjeyge Gulhun Plc (Dhiraagu) on its Dhiraagu undersea cable system (DSCS), the company said.

Located in the Republic of Maldives and originally installed in 2006, DSCS is a four fiber pair unrepeated telecommunications system with a 12.14km segment from Malé to Hulhumalé and a 5.9km segment from Malé to Villingili.

Due to the planned construction of a new bridge linking Malé to Hulhumalé, relocation of both shore-ends in the capital and most populous city of Malé is mandatory as the planned area of the bridge works extends over the existing submarine cable locations.

Throughout the length of the assignment, Pioneer Consulting provided Project Management and engineering expertise for all aspects of the project from Desktop Study to Factory Acceptance Testing through to marine operations and final system commissioning. Pioneer´s support of critical national and international communications infrastructure allows telecom service providers continued growth and robustness of their networks.

Dhiraagu is the leading and the largest telecommunication operator offering total solutions and a comprehensive range of mobile, Internet, data and fixed line services throughout Maldives. The business is based on a commitment to providing innovative products and services and a philosophy that places high value on customer satisfaction.

In addition to the strong presence in the capital, Malé, the company has 9 strategically located operating centers throughout the country that is augmented by the nation´s largest retail and distribution network.
