Global Marine wins contract for NEPTUNE Deep Sea Research Observatory
Global Marine, the UK headquartered world leader in subsea cable route design, installation and maintenance
Global Marine’s heritage in subsea cable installation and maintenance assured its capability to deliver the fibre optic infrastructure required to bring ocean observatory projects to fruition. The scientific site relies on complete accuracy in terms of ascertaining the node and sensor deployment points and Global Marine’s vessels, staff and subsea equipment provide the capability to make this happen.
From project concept, Global Marine can assist with route engineering and project planning and once agreed offers an innovative engineered installation solution. When the ocean observatory is live and feeding data back to the mainland our maintenance solutions provide peace of mind and reassure scientists that their investment is being protected.
Global Marine sets itself high environmental standards with any subsea cable project, it is imperative that these are fully adhered to when operating within an ocean observatory as any disruption can ultimately impact the research findings.
Global Marine with a legacy of 160 years of installing subsea cable is well placed to work on ocean observatory projects working commonly to a depth of 2,000 to 2,500m.
Cable protection is key to the lifespan of the system, Global Marine's amassed skill determines the most appropriate solution in the pre-project planning stage, which is executed during installation.
