Station Manager at the Sierra Leone Cable Limited (SLCL), Claudius John, has said that the fibre optic station has been operational since it was commissioned by President Ernest Bai Koroma last year.
Mr. John, who was speaking in an exclusive interview with Concord Times on Wednesday July 31 at their head office on Beach Road, Lumley, said the fibre submarine cable is buried in the seabed and that the UPS is powered by the battery banks which give direct current to the control room.
“We are connected to countries in a circular form, including France, Senegal, Gambia, Guinea, Liberia, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria, Congo and Sao Tome,” said the SLCL station manager. “If any fault occurs, the light on the screen will indicate the colour according to percentage of the fault.”
