Optic Marine Services Group (OMS), a provider of integrated submarine cable installation project solutions, has launched the Malaysian-flagged subsea cable installation barge the ‘Cable Orchestra’.

Reportedly, the $15-million cable laying barge is purpose-built for cable installation in water depth of up to 40 metres.

Cable Orchestra is the latest barge to join OMS’ fleet and it’s equipped with a 5-meter burial tool, the Dragon Sledge.

It can accommodate up to 50 crew members and is equipped with a Dynamic Positioning System.

The barge has an overall length of 66 meters with breath of 20.5 meters. It has the capacity to carry 700 tonnes of cables that equate to about 200km.

According to reports, Cable Orchestra will be put to work next month on a segment of the SEA-ME-WE 5 submarine cable system.
