Glomar Offshore Completes Its First Project for Briggs Marine


Glomar Offshore has completed its first project for Briggs Marine & Environmental Services using the ‘Glomar Wave’ multi-purpose DP2 subsea support vessel.

The project, mobilizing from the Fairlie Quay, near Glasgow, involved inspection of submarine electricity cables. These cables provide a reliable supply of electricity to island residents and businesses, the company explained.

The inspections were performed by a Schilling HD heavy duty work class ROV system from ROVOP.

The system, fitted with a multibeam echo sounder and a cable tracker, launched and operated in the Tether Management System.

“For everybody in Glomar, both shoreside and crew, this has been a landmark project, as it showcased the DP capabilities, performance and fuel efficiency of the Glomar Wave in extremely high current areas, where accuracy is imperative during restricted maneuverability,” Glomar Offshore said.
