Case Study

Cable Innovator and C.S. Sovereign work together to deliver platform connectivity in the North Sea

Global Marine was contracted by Allseas for the marine installation works for the Breagh ‘A’ Development Fibre Optic Cable Installation.

The cable system provides capacity for the Breagh ‘A’ platform, which incorporates approximately 102km of fibre optic cable which was installed from Coatham Sands, Teesside to the Breagh ‘A’ Platform. 38.5km of which was buried, providing appropriate cable protection for the prevailing seabed conditions.
