The Singapore Southern Gateway Cable System
Singapore, along with Asia, is witnessing a significant acceleration in demand for digital applications and investments in data centre networks. This is also in line with its energy policies to import renewable energy to meet the nation's net-zero targets by 2030. Singapore aims to double its capacity for international subsea cable landings over the next decade to boost the city-state’s digital connectivity. The city-state currently has 26 subsea cables landed here across three landing sites, and the number of sites will double over the next 10 years.
The next-generation SSG Cable and landing Station will link the south of Singapore through industry partnerships focused on telecommunications networks and power connectivity, expanding, and enabling next-generation global subsea networks and landings into Singapore from the region.
Since 2022, G8 Subsea has completed 15 subsea cable landings in Singapore and is poised to continue further expanding the city-state’s subsea telecommunications and power connectivity.
“In today’s digital age, the demand for submarine capacity to transmit terabytes of data is accelerating at an unprecedented rate. At G8, we recognise the mission-critical role that subsea cable networks have developed in facilitating seamless communication and information access on a global scale,” commented G8’s Managing Director, Gerald Tan. “As the landscape of telecommunications and power infrastructure continues to evolve, G8 remains committed to staying at the forefront of technology to empower a connectivity-focused world."
