The Sunshine Coast Council has announced the completion of its AU$7.2 million cable landing station at Maroochydore that will house the connection of the AU$35 million Japan-Guam-Australia subsea system.  

The landing station, which was built by Vertiv, is located adjacent to the new Maroochydore city centre, a 60-hectare area that is being developed into a commercial, retail, medium and high density residential development area with new road transport, public open spaces, community facilities, and infrastructure.

With capacity for four submarine cables and electricity supplied from two different sources, the new station also features 24 data cabinets, 20 security cameras, and two 500 KVA back-up power generators.
