DUBAI, UAE – E-marine plans to expand its fleet of ships installing and repairing submarine energy and fiber-optic telecommunications cables in the Middle East and Indian sub-continent region.
TheCS Maram, built in Abu Dhabi, has been designed to manage installation and maintenance of all types of submarine cables. After completing dock trials it should be ready for launch in the next few months. The fully loaded maintenance and installation vessel will incorporate a submarine robot or ROV allowing it to undertake pre-inspections and surveys of the seabed and cut trenches to bury cable.
E-marine plans to add further multi-purpose vessels over the coming years, allowing it to expand coverage to other areas, and in particular East Africa and the wider African continent.
