Gardline has been awarded a survey contract by Huawei Submarine Networks for the Nationwide Submarine Cable Project initiated by Ooredoo Maldives.
The project consists of surveying 5 interisland cables with 6 landing sites spanning the entire length of the country.
The scope of work includes multibeam bathymetry from 3m to 2,800m WD. Topographic work and diver swim surveys are also required at all landing sites.
Gardline mobilized its multipurpose survey vessel MV Duke for this project.
The project covers an area of 1,200km with the offshore survey work scheduled to be completed within 12 days.
The landfall surveys will take approximately 45 days to complete.
