Global Marine Systems has secured a contract that will see it provide personnel and equipment that will support the delivery of a submarine fiber optic link between platforms on behalf of client, Subsea 7, a provider of subsea engineering and construction, and end user BP.
Global Marine will be providing highly skilled jointing personnel to work with Subsea 7 in delivering platform-to-platform connectivity from the existing Clair platform, 50mi west of the Shetland Isles, in the North Sea, to the new Clair Ridge platform.
The team will work aboard Subsea 7’s Seven Falcon. On the Clair Ridge project, jointing and deck personnel will provide expertise, utilizing the Universal Quick Joints and jointers, trained at Global Marine’s training school, will conduct splicing operations.
“At Global Marine we have a long and rich history in submarine cable installation and maintenance and we look forward to applying these skills to complete the Clair Ridge project,” said Nicola Broom, director, sales and commercial at Global Marine.
