SAT-3's repair vessel departed from Cape Town, South Africa, on March 19, 2024, and is expected to reach the fault area by March 29, 2024. Repair work will commence immediately, with an estimated completion by the second week of April, subject to any unforeseen circumstances.

MainOne, WACS, and ACE have jointly commissioned a repair vessel, which set sail from London, UK, on March 24, 2024. The vessel is scheduled to arrive at its first point of call by 8th April 2024. The expected time of restoration for each cable is as follows:
