center3, Owned by stc group, and Alcatel Submarine Networks to Connect Saudi Arabia with Europe by Building the EMC West Subsea and Terrestrial Data Cables
The EMC West subsea and terrestrial data cables project will see Saudi Arabia, Greece, and Cyprus unite to expand the global digital connectivity infrastructure.
The project will see Saudi Arabia become a regional digital hub connecting Asia, Europe and Africa.
The EMC cable is designed, from its inception, to realise KSA’s Vision 2030 and Greece 2.0 by transforming the KSA into a “Digital Hub” that connects Asia with Europe and Africa and positioning Greece and Cyprus as “European Union’s East Data Gateway”.
ASN will begin to construct EMC West, linking Haql (Saudi Arabia) with Genova (Italy) and Marseille (France), via Cyprus and Greece. The two cables - consisting of multiple Fiber Pairs - will have branches in Cyprus, Crete, and Athens. The EMC system is expected to operate in Q1 2026 (RFS date).
The EMC consortium partners expressed their gratitude and appreciation to all stakeholders. They congratulated their teams and the related Ministries for facilitating the implementation of this ground-breaking and high-profile project.
