Recently there was a disruption on the SEA-ME-WE 4 cable connecting SEACOM to London through the Mediterranean Sea. Due to this we had various questions asking us exactly how undersea cables are laid. This short video explains the process SEACOM took while laying the undersea cable.
The "Ile de Brehat" cable ship is loading submarine cables from the Alcatel-Lucent's submarine networks plant in Calais, France, for the WACS subamrine system. Named the West Africa Cable System (WACS), this 14,000 km-long submarine network system will bolster Internet and other communications capabilities to and from the African continent.
The Lewek Connector (formerly known as the AMC Connector) is an advanced subsea installation and construction vessel capable of operating in waters up to 3000 meters. Lewek Connector sets a new standard in the subsea cable laying market. The vessel has a unique pay load capacity of 9000 tones of products, as it is equipped with two turntables for high voltage power cables or subsea umbilical´s. This makes Lewek Connector the world´s largest cable installation vessel. With this record breaking product payload capacity, Lewek Connector will be able to take on highly complex and sizeable projects. This state of the art cable laying vessel is perfectly designed for power connections to oil & gas platforms or wind parks as well as to other renewable power transfers. ABB has signed a charter...

Aerial views over the fantastic beach at Pensarn and the cable layer ship/boat currently moored up there for whatever reason cable layers need messing about with. Pensarn is a suburb of Abergele in Conwy County Borough, Wales. It has a population of around 2,000. The name Pensarn means 'end of the causeway' in English. The crossing of Morfa Rhuddlan was facilitated by a causeway near the sea, located at this point. This causeway was later flanked by the holiday developments along the coast. Pensarn is served by Abergele and Pensarn railway station, the A55 and National Cycle Route 5 Music courtesy of www.freestockmusic.com Gear used is a DJi F450 quadcopter, Naza Controller, RC Logger FPV system, DX7 controller.

ALL COMMENTS WELCOME! Cable Ship Innovator, Global MarineAt 10,040dwt, the Cable Innovator is the world's largest vessel of its kind, specifically designed for laying fibre optic cable. The vessel was built by Kvaerner Masa of Finland. All cable-laying operations are carried out over the stern, so the ship travels much faster to the site and is not slowed down by conventional bow sheaves. It can operate in extreme weather while providing optimum protection for all cable-handling operations. It is equipped to deploy a remotely operated vehicle (ROV). The Innovator is a multi-role DP2 vessel and is capable of handling the wide variety of subsea tasks required by such diverse industries as Oil and Gas, Renewable Energy, Telecommunications and Deep Sea Research. Its main cable tanks provi...

See more from the AT&T Archives at http://techchannel.att.com/archives Bonus Edition Introduction by George Kupczak of the AT&T Archives and History Center The story of the Bell System's first "ultra modern" Cable ship. Included in the film are her first cable laying assignments: the third cable across the Atlantic Ocean (Transatlantic Cable Number 3), and the first cable across the Pacific Ocean (Transpacific Cable Number 1 -- from Hawaii to Japan, via Midway, Wake and Guam). Also shown are the cables laid from Guam to the Philippines, the second Hawaiian cable back into San Luis Obispo on the California Coast, and the Vero Beach, FL to St. Thomas, V.I. cable system. The following operations are detailed in the film: cable manufacture, cable loading, repeater splicing, and cable laying...

Sorry for mistakes, guys, I edited the video while I was in a hurry. This is supposed to be an easy guide to help you to finish that part quickly. I forgot to insert the Captain's room key location, it is in the bunk rooms on the 2nd Floor!
