Briggs Boosts Subsea Portfolio

Marine contractor Briggs Marine has invested more than £1 million into its subsea services division over recent months.

The company said it has enhanced its subsea cable repair and installation capabilities with the addition of two new 15Te tracked cable tensioners. The tensioners were employed immediately in the renewable energy sector to deliver power to cable installation operations for Briggs’ subsea services division.

Briggs has also invested in two cable storage tanks, extending its Burntisland-based cable depot, based on increased demand. This move further strengthens Briggs’ range of services for the renewable, utilities, diving and oil and gas sectors.

Craig English, director of subsea services at Briggs Marine, said: “We strive to ensure that we have a modern and fit-for-purpose range of equipment, to offer our clients the highest level of service and best solutions for their needs.

“Briggs Marine continues to demonstrate commitment to the subsea services market by investing significantly into high quality, capable cable handling equipment. These new assets further strengthen our position as a leading provider of turnkey subsea cable installation and repair solutions to the renewable energy and utilities markets.”

The new cable tensioner units will be stored at recently set up Briggs’ Liverpool portside facilities.
