S. B. Submarine Systems (SBSS) has completed the Stingray fibre optic cable installation project for Ifactors in Malaysia.

The installation and burial of 72.4 km of fibre optic cable was completed by the cable ship the Bold Maverick, utilizing both the Hi-plough and remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Sea Lion.

The first cable was installed between Rompin to Pulau Tioman in Malaysia, with the entire length buried for enhanced cable protection, with a length of 5.5 km buried by the Hi-plough to a depth of 3 meters.

The second 61.9 km cable was installed between Besut to Perhentian Kecil, in Malaysia with 13.4 km buried to a depth of 3 meters.

It’s been a pleasure having the opportunity to work with SBSS. We are extremely happy with the support and commitment offered by the SBSS team,” said Abu Bakar Sutan Taharudin, CEO of Ifactors. “The operational team is definitely well trained and experienced in their scope of responsibility and we look forward to working with SBSS in the future.”

Simon Hibberd, managing director of SBSS added, “We’re really pleased to have executed this project successfully for our customer. Engineering a solution to provide appropriate levels of cable protection is a critical element for any installation project and essential in providing all our customers with peace of mind for the long-term resilience of their critical subsea assets.”
