Global Marine, a part of the Global Marine Group, has completed two fibre optic cable installations, bringing connectivity to two UK North Sea and two Norwegian sector oil and gas platforms.
The projects, awarded to Global Marine by Tampnet, are designed to further enhance inter oil-field communication networks in the North Sea.
Spanning a period of just over 18 months, Global Marine’s scope of work included the desktop study, marine survey, and lay and burial of just under 100 kilometers of fibre optic cable.
The company’s engineering team was responsible for the deployment of a cable end module, mattress and rock placement as well as interfacing with the various subsea asset owners to secure the appropriate site access and crossing approvals.
The projects also called for the installation of a further four branching units at selected locations along the cable route, which allows for future expansion of the system to other platforms.
Bruce Neilson-Watts, managing director of Global Marine said: “Our team’s flawless execution of this project further reinforces our reputation as a leading partner for complex subsea projects and sets the stage for Global Marine and Tampnet to continue their long-term relationship.”
Per Helge Svensson, chief executive officer, Tampnet added, “Global Marine has delivered yet another first class project. Tampnet is very content with the execution and the work performed, which is building on the already strong relationship between Global Marine and Tampnet.”
