Subsea Cables

Boskalis has an unparalleled track record in subsea cable installation. We have successfully installed more than 5,000 km of export and array cables with our own fleet of cable lay and trenching vessels, barges and advanced support equipment. As a total solutions provider, we can deliver a fully integrated service for our clients.

Boskalis offers the full range of installation and burial solutions for export, interconnector and inter-array cables. We back that up with in-house services such as offshore survey, seabed preparation, dredging and rock placement. The combination of our own fleet of vessels and equipment with in-house project management and engineering expertise minimizes risk for our clients’ projects, from the early stages until final handover.
