This is a significant milestone as Seaborn prepares Seabras-1 for its ready-for-service date in August 2017.

Seabras-1 is owned by Seabras Group. The completion of the system is the culmination of more than five years of work and more than $520 million of project financing. Seaborn operates and maintains Seabras-1 from its offices in the United States and Brazil, including Seaborn’s own network operations centers in New Jersey and Massachusetts.

“This is a tremendous achievement for both Seaborn and Seabras-1,” said Larry Schwartz, Chairman and CEO of both Seabras Group and Seaborn Networks.
