Incab & TEA NEXT

New cable designs using Russian fiber for TEA NEXT project have been tested at Incab’s Test Centre.

Since 2022, Incab has been participating in TEA NEXT (trans-Eurasian fiber optic communication line) project. This is a project to build a fiber optic communication line (FOCL) from Kaliningrad to Sakhalin. It will link Russia’s western and eastern borders and will be the most modern form of telecommunication. The whole construction project is divided into three stages:

– Idritsa – Kyakhta

– Kyakhta – Vladivostok

– Infrastructure across Europe and underwater fibre optic communication line in Asia

The construction of TEA NEXT project is scheduled to last until 2026, with a total length of more than 8,000 kilometres. Incab has already delivered over 2,000 kilometres of cable and this is just stage 1 out of 3.

Last week we successfully performed a series of mechanical, climatic and electrical testing of direct buried cables in our Test Centre. Soon more than 500 kilometres of the tested cable will be delivered to Kirov region.

It is valuable for us to be a part of such an important project that connects different parts of the country.

We are sure that projects like TEA NEXT are the future of our country, and we are happy to build digital roads together!
