Global Marine Secures Extension with Atlantic Cable Maintenance Agreement

Global Marine Systems has been awarded the renewal of the Atlantic Cable Maintenance Agreement (ACMA), alongside its Atlantic partner for maintenance services, Orange Marine.

The new contract began on January 1, 2017, and runs for five years, through to December 2021.

ACMA is a non-profit cooperative subsea maintenance agreement consisting of 60+ members. ACMA members are companies responsible for the operations and maintenance of undersea communications and power cables, as well as Oil & Gas Platform operators, in the Atlantic, North Sea and South Eastern Pacific Ocean.

Global Marine’s maintenance vessels, the Wave Sentinel and Pacific Guardian, will be servicing ACMA17 from their bases in Portland, UK and Curacao in the Netherlands Antilles.

“We appreciate the confidence placed in us by the Atlantic Cable Maintenance Agreement members and look forward to ensuring that their cables are effectively protected,” said John Walters, maintenance director, Global Marine. “The resilience of communication networks throughout the Atlantic and Western South America is critically important to companies and consumers alike, and Global Marine is proud to again be of service to maintain these vital connections.”

Alasdair Wilkie, ACMA Chairman, said: “We trust the Global Marine and Orange Marine solution. Over decades, the two companies have repeatedly demonstrated their pedigree and experience in this highly specialised area.”
