Environmental Impact Assessment

  • The proponent, Airtel Network Kenya Limited, proposes the laying of a submarine telecommunication cable and landing of the cable on the Kenya shoreline. Fibre-optic cable system project (2Africa or the Project) will span more than 37,000 kilometres, interconnecting Europe to Africa and the Middle East, with 35 landings in 26 countries, and will deliver increased capacity, quality and availability of internet connectivity to consumers and businesses. The installation and operation of submarine cables will be through the Exclusive Economic Zone and territorial sea of Kenya, the system will have two landings in Kenya, both on the northern coast of Mombasa. Two branch cables from the system trunk will be laid by a cable-lay vessel until the ship reaches a shallow-water depth of around 15 metres. From this point, smaller vessels and divers will be used to install the cable in shallow water and pull the cable to shore. The Project will also involve the construction of two beach manholes (BMHs) (one per landing site) adjacent to the beach to facilitate the connection of the submarine component to the terrestrial portion of the Project. The beach and BMH sites will be restored to their original state after construction. The only element visible will be the 1-metre-diameter manhole covers. The branching cables will be ‘landed’ on the beach and will each terminate at a BMH. The terrestrial portion of the Project will be installed from the BMH to a Cable Landing Station, where it will be connected to various configurations of terrestrial fibre-optic cable systems.
