Cable Installation


Cable installation

Orange Marine has laid almost 190 000 kilometers of submarine cables in all oceans, including 160,000 km of optic fiber. 

Installation contracts are signed after bids from consortia. Orange Marine provides a comprehensive service offer:

  • project engineering, 
  • project management of bathymetric surveys,
  • route selection,
  • evaluation of resources (crews and technical teams, ship , cable length etc..),
  • completion of the installation,
  • shore ends on the coasts and connection with ground stations,
  • complete reporting.

The cable is laid on the ocean bottoms. Near the coast, it is generally buried with a plough or a crawler to protect it from anchors and trawls. Once arrived at its destination, the cable ship passes the baton to a smaller boat that pulls the cable to the beach. It will then be connected to the network via the ground station.
