Rockabill Cable Route - Cable Installation

The laying of the Rockabill Subsea Telecommunications Cable is now complete. The cable has been buried for most of its length. There are four short sections ( 50 to 65 metres each ) where burial was not possible due to crossing over existing cables / pipelines and these short lengths have been overlaid with fleximat for protection.

Vessels should exercise caution if anchoring or fishing near the cable.

The cable lay/fleximat vessel Roxanne Z and all guard vessels are now stood down and off location.
