Innovative Cable Laying Ship Delivered

Asean Cableship Pte Limited (ACPL) has taken final delivery of the $38M cable laying ship CS Asean Explorer. The vessel employs the latest in technology and was designed by BMT Shipdesign under contract to Jurong Shipyard, a subsidiary of SembCorp Marine. The design was based on a concept hull design developed through BMT’s R&D programme. This ship represents the culmination of a 23-month relationship between BMT and Jurong Shipyard and encapsulates the operating experience of the ACPL.

Although designed for long haul cable laying, the vessel is as efficient in repair and maintenance operations as well as the laying of a short repeaterless cable system. She is also capable of meeting future marine installation challenges such as deep burial. CS Asean Explorer has a cable tank capacity of 5,760 tons, can lay approximately 5,000 kilometres of light weight cables in one go, can accommodate a 3 metre plow and a 3 metre working class ROV.

David Connolly, Business Development Director at BMT Shipdesign, commented: ’As an engineer it is always pleasing to witness the evolution of a design from concept to reality. We’ve again demonstrated BMT can deliver a sophisticated design in an extremely tight timeframe. The project has been a real success thanks to great teamwork. It has been a pleasure to work with Jurong Shipyard and we look forward to continuing our relationship with this highly successful yard.'
