Global Marine has successfully completed two fibre optic cable installations, bringing high-speed connectivity to four UK North Sea oil and gas platforms. The projects were awarded to the subsea fibre optic cable installation company by operator, Tampnet.

Spanning a period of a little over 18 months, Global Marine’s work included the desktop study, marine survey, and lay and burial of just under 100 kilometres 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, were delivered ahead of planned delivery dates, and also required the installation of a further four branching units at selected locations along the cable route, to future-proof the system in case of future expansion.

Per Helge Svensson, chief executive officer at Tampnet commented: ‘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.’
