Submarine Cable Maintenance Agreement

The Yokohama area was one of the most important cable maintenance areas in the Asia-Pacific region. In 1997, it was reformed and developed with two ships on standby over the years, with the creation of the “Agreement on the Maintenance of Cable Systems of the Pacific Ocean in the Yokohama Area” and completed in 2001 by the Yokohama Zone ROV Agreement. The last time PIOCMA was called was during the 2006 earthquake in Taiwan, which resulted in a dramatic reduction in internet traffic speed due to simultaneous errors in several cables. More recently, piocma was on alert after the 2011 Japanese tsunami, although it was not used. Table 17.1 shows a comparison between the two types of maintenance contracts. In addition to the PIOCMA legal assistance mentioned above, YZ is permanently supported by two pending cable ships in the area. The wiring location is well located with the appropriate storage service for cables and spare equipment, which allow for prompt action after a formal request for AD mobilization. The knowledge and cooperation of MMAs also allows the work permit to be obtained for the repair process within a reasonable time. Similarly, emergency transportation of replacement cables and equipment from one warehouse to another can be carried out on time in the event of a shortage of replacement diving equipment. Most of the region`s cables are maintained under this agreement, which provides the necessary security for these important submarine cables. Operating costs paid by the cable owner who requests repair to the cable carrier. Choosing quality over quantity means buying technology not because it is at the lowest price, but because it represents quality, not from a brand point of view, but in terms of performance, customer support and maintenance contracts.

This concept goes hand in hand with the principle of prevention against reaction. The Cable Retriever is dedicated to SEAIOCMA and is headquartered in Subic Bay, Philippines, where Global Marine also owns and operates the Cable Subic Depot.
