The heart of the SubCom cable ship fleet is the group of six
Reliance Class vessels. Specifically designed and constructed for cable maintenance
and construction, these ships are the most versatile and capable cable ships in the
At 140 meters in length, the powerful, dynamically positioned vessels are capable
of sustained cable operations in harsh weather conditions. Each vessel is typically
outfitted with a Perry Tritech ST200 series remotely operated vehicle and either
1.5-meter or 3-meter capable sea plow. VSAT communications equipment ensures
that broadband connectivity is available to her crew while the vessel is deployed.
The unique arrangement of twin cable drums and a linear cable engine provides
redundancy and flexibility to install and repair any existing cable system.
SubCom’s fleet crews are comprised of highly trained and experienced
merchant mariners, submersible engineers, and cable operations staff. In addition
to typical cable construction and maintenance activities, the cable ships provide
excellent platforms for trenching, mattressing, and salvage operations.
