Global Marine Wraps Up ASE Cable Extension Work

Global Marine Systems has completed installation of approximately 380 km of OCC SC500 fibre optic cable between the Japanese island of Okinawa and an existing branching unit (BU) in the Asia Submarine-cable Express (ASE) system.

This extension of the 7,200 km intra-Asia cable system, which was completed in 2012, connects Japan to the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong.

Contracted by NTT World Engineering Marine (NTT WEM), Global Marine installed cable using the Cable Innovator vessel.

The cable was landed from the vessel via direct shore ends at the southern tip of Okinawa before being laid to the BU of ASE.

“As an experienced operator in the Asia region, we are ideally placed to offer rapid response to short project deadlines,” said Andy Lloyd, Director, Installation at Global Marine. “With operations completed within a small timeframe, we are demonstrating how our professional team can work together to fulfil client needs, no matter how demanding.”

Masashi Nakagawa, Senior Project Manager at NTTWEM added, “We are very pleased to work with the Global Marine team and utilise a high performance installation vessel like the Cable Innovator for this important project.”
