C.S Sovereign

The ACMA Chairman Alasdair Wilkie (Digicel) said: “I am very pleased that it has been possible to agree terms and conditions with the Agreement cable ship suppliers and to ensure that the ACMA region will continue to receive a high level of maintenance cover with the Agreement’s dedicated repair vessels.

2WaveSentinelThis is particularly key given the ongoing pandemic and the higher than ever dependence on the digital economy and the enabling connectivity provided by submarine cables. I also thank the suppliers, in particular their marine staff, for their continuing high level of performance despite the many recent pandemic restrictions and challenges faced by the shipping industry globally.”  

Bruce Neilson-Watts MD at Global Marine added: “It is a real pleasure to agree on this extension to provide ongoing services to the ACMA members until 2025. Global Marine is proud of its association and decade-long, successful relationship with the ACMA parties. I particularly welcome the flexibility shown in allowing windfarm owners to partner with both Global Marine and the agreement members to undertake inter-array replacement and string repairs. As governments move to an increasingly green agenda in the face of climate change, we’re experiencing huge developments in offshore wind and renewables, so this is proving to be an ever-more valuable service.”
