Unique Group’s SeaSerpent Successfully Deployed By Subsea7 - 20/05/2019


Subsea 7, a Luxembourg based engineering, construction and services company, ordered over 5 kilometres of Unique Group’s Seaflex branded SeaSerpent product. Recently it was delivered. In addition dedicated launch & recovery pedestals and 4000 of the company’s SeaBuckles for ease of attachment to and release from the umbilical, were supplied.

Initial training

The company’s UK based Site Support Manager Ben Board and Site Technician Trevor Barton were stationed on the barge to provide initial training on the system and to ensure the most effective use of the system during the landing of the cable.

Increase in Cable Laying

Unique Group Buoyancy & Ballast division’s Global Sales Manager Chris Sparrow noted: “With the worldwide increase in cable laying over the past few years due to advances within the telecommunications and renewable energy sectors, more contractors are now specifying the SeaSerpent for such operations and benefitting from technical support we can offer around it. From initial enquiry through to assistance on the barge as the cable is landed.”
