Marlinks secures first cable condition monitoring contract in the US.
Ghent, Belgium/ Massachusetts, US – Marlinks, a world leader in the provision of subsea cable integrity monitoring services, announces its first contract award in the United States. The contract includes the supply, installation, commissioning of monitoring hardware and the ongoing provision of integrity monitoring services, more precisely depth of burial monitoring of the project’s inter array cables.
