Orange Marine is ready to launch a new submarine cable services initiative in the Middle East. According to a company release, this will be in partnership with Fiber Misr Group.
The pair agreed and signed a memorandum of understanding this week to work together on the new initiative. It will be based in Egypt but will provide subsea services across the Middle East and North Africa regions. The Memorandum will see both companies work closely together to offer an extensive suite of subsea services across the region. Subsequently, this will build on the years of mutual cooperation between the two firms.
According to Didier Dillard, CEO of Orange Marine, the company has a long experience when providing a full range of services for submarine cables everywhere in the world. In particular, their expertise is even more valuable in the Mediterranean and Red Sea areas. Because of the growing importance of submarine cables, the CEO says that the company is very happy to explore new ways to enhance these services with a partner such as Fiber Misr.
Ahmed Mekky, Chariman and CEO of Fiber Misr Group said “I welcome this important step which formalises and strengthens the existing relations and negotiations between Orange Marine and Fiber Misr Group. I look forward to continuing to build on our constructive co-operation in the interest of the submarine cable industry all over the world.”
