The Optic Marine Group completes major cable installation work in Indonesia

KUALA LUMPUR: The Optic Marine Group, which has acquired cable laying vessel c.s. “Ile De Re” in May 2016, has secured and successfully completed major cable installation work in Indonesia and the Pacific Ocean covering Samoa-Fiji and Tonga.

In 2008, the group started their operations with their first cable laying barge, Cable Empowered, presently flagged in Indonesia. In 2015, the group further acquired a second shallow water cable laying barge, Cable Orchestra, which was the first Malaysian flagged vessel exclusively for laying power and fibre optic cables.

“With the addition of the Indonesian flagged c.s. “Ile De Re”, the group has expanded to a full cable laying fleet comprising of one deep water cable ship, two shallow water DP cable barges and three anchor handling tugs. With this fleet, the Group proudly offers a total solution for full subsea cable marine services – installation, maintenance and repairs,” the Optic Marine Group said in a statement. 

Globally, there are approximately 55 deep water cable ships of this class, with only a handful operating in the Asia Pacific region. 

The group’s fleet flags places them in a strategic position within the industry with its ability to service Malaysian and Indonesian waters, the South China Sea, the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean.

Currently, the c.s. “Ile De Re” is docked at Loyang Offshore Supply Base in Singapore for the loading of subsea fibre optic cables for an international cable project extending out from Singapore.
