Client – SSE
Overview – Installation of an electricity cable through a bridge.

Project Name – Submarine cable inspection campaign
Client – SSE
Overview – Visual inspection of 45 submarine cables.
Services Provided – An extremely challenging project as the data required was positional and depth of burial.
