Predict likely faults before they occur

Our service predicts the likely cause of faults across shallow and deep water, as well as where faults are likely to occur along the cable (including maritime zone and country). This service means you can save time and money by permitting and mitigating risks and planning ahead for the subsequent cost of repairs when a fault does occur.


Predicts the total number of annual faults across the lifetime of the cable


Predicted faults per year are broken down by likely cause, such as abrasion or third party activity


Details the likelihood of faults occurring along the cable route by geographical location


The number of expected faults within each country’s jurisdiction along the route and their location in territorial waters, contiguous zone or exclusive economic zone
