Global telecommunications is something many of us take for granted, but in reality, much of the world is interconnected by submarine undersea cable that carries our telephone, internet and other messages across the continents.
The careful initial processes of laying that cable was detailed in a recent Ocean News and Technology magazine story about CSA Ocean Sciences, a marine environmental consulting company that called upon Guice Offshore and our M/V GO Freedom to help them complete a challenging multi-disciplinary geophysical and benthic survey as part of an ongoing marine cable route campaign for a major telecommunications company.
Guice Offshore’s GO Freedom is a 150’ class Dynamic Positioning (DP)1 offshore supply vessel equipped with a stern A-frame.
Utilizing vessels like the GO Freedom, or the 150 ft DP1 GO Liberty and the 170 ft DP1 GO Discovery, geotechnical companies like CSA Ocean Sciences can perform detailed survey activities for their clients, such as seabed mapping, soil investigations and core sampling.
Depending on their equipment installed, Guice Offshore vessels can work in a variety of coastal or offshore environments and water depths.
The open cargo deck, ample accommodations, excellent maneuverability and station-keeping, all coupled with an efficient cost of operations, makes the GO fleet a consistently reliable choice for this industry.
