E-marine, which is a subsidiary of Etisalat, has completed a new submarine cable connecting the UAE and Pakistan, branching to Oman. The project to lay over 1200 kms of submarine cable was awarded to e-marine by Tyco. “Our vessels and people have once again shown their expertise and leadership in our field by completing the project successfully in a record time.
