Apollo South - Emergency Repair

Global Marine has been contracted to undertake an emergency repair to the Apollo South fibre optic telecommunications cable.

The CS Sovereign is currently scheduled to arrive on site 28th January 2018 to commence repair works.

The estimated location is 49°5.110'N 5°8.768'W

subject to further fault investigation on arrival, and the duration of the cable repair will be approximately 5 days depending upon weather or other operational conditions. Details of the operation and expected location are contained in the attached cable works notice.

The vessel will be limited in manoeuvrability. Other vessels should maintain a distance of at least 1NM from the cable ship during operations, and 1/4NM from any cable buoys in place during the course of the repair for safety.
