Route clearance

As part of its comprehensive offers, Orange Marine offers route clearance services compliant with ICPC recommendations.

Route clearance

Route clearance is a very important stage taking place just before the cable installation. It consists in clearing the route of the end-of-life cables identified during the Marine Survey.

These cables and refuses may endanger the new cable or the plough during the burial.



The Pre Lay Grapnel Run – or PLGR – occurs a few days before the installation. The ship dredges a grapnel to clear any obstacle that could obstruct the plough, such as fishing nets, ropes, lines…

All these refuses are recycled according to current standards.
