SUMMIT, N.J. and DUBLIN -- Hibernia Atlantic, the largest, privately held, diverse TransAtlantic submarine cable provider, is pleased to announce its Project Kelvin fibre network cable build is successfully underway. This historic modern cable construction will connect Northern Ireland directly to Europe and North America. This build is part of 'Project Kelvin', a joint initiative between the Department of Enterprise Trade and Investment (DETI) for Northern Ireland and the Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources (DCENR) for the Republic of Ireland, to further stimulate local and global commerce with a new wealth of fibre optic capacity and the ability to directly and securely connect to North America, UK and mainland Europe.

The project, currently under construction, includes laying the cable network in place, both on land and in the water, to connect 5 towns in the Republic and 8 towns in Northern Ireland (as seen in the below map) to Hibernia's existing transAtlantic cable. Additionally this build includes establishing a Telehouse in Londonderry/Derry. For more information about Project Kelvin, please click here.
