XSite Modular Awarded Cable Landing Stations Design-Build Contract by Solomon Islands Submarine Cable Company Limited

XSite Modular, the leading prefabrication consultant and design-builder of Critical Infrastructure Buildings worldwide, announces that it has been awarded a contract to design and build four modular cable landing stations by the Solomon Islands Submarine Cable Company Limited (SISCC). The latest contract is one of many that have been awarded to XSite in 2018, with additional contract awards to be announced in the coming months.

To be completed in mid-2019, the new cable landing stations will be deployed in Honiara, Auki, Noro, and Taro, Solomon Islands, with an additional structure to serve as office space for the company’s headquarters in Honiara. The landing stations will be part of SISCC’s undersea cable network for the Solomon Islands, which includes the Coral Sea Cable System (CSCS), a 4,700km subsea network connecting Sydney, Australia to Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea and Honiara in the Solomon Islands and the Solomon Islands Domestic Network (SIDN), a 730km subsea network linking Taro in Choiseul Province, Noro in Western Province and Auki in Malaita Province to SISCC’s international hub in Honiara.

Both of these cable systems are being majority grant funded by the Commonwealth of Australia as part of its Official Development Assistance program under a Memorandum of Understanding signed by the Governments of Australia, Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands in July 2018. The Cable Landing Stations form part of the landing party infrastructure that SISCC must provide under these project agreements, ready for installation and commissioning of the cable infrastructure in mid-2019.

“Our cable landing stations can withstand the worst natural disasters, security threats and failure scenarios imaginable,” states Amy Marks, CEO, XSite Modular. “The permanent steel and concrete buildings are designed to a 50-year lifespan and constructed using modular technology, which is ideal for environments such as these. We’re honored to have been awarded this contract and are excited to be a part of the great work being done by our partners in this region.”

XSite’s modular landing stations will provide SISCC with critical services including cooling, ventilation, fire detection and suppression, AC backup power, cable management, access control, video surveillance and a building management system, among others. Once completed, the buildings, containing top-line and high-value equipment, will be shipped to the Solomon Islands where they will be set, assembled and tested to meet the highest standards for critical infrastructure.

“XSite’s modular approach made design and construction of the structures easily customizable and able to meet both the strict delivery and budget demands of this ambitious project,” states Keir Preedy, CEO, SISCC. “Most crucially, XSite provides best-in-class and proven building techniques that offer the safety and reliability gurantees that are simply without compromise. We’re pleased to have them as our partner in developing and implementing this critical infrastructure for the Solomon Islands.”
