General – Cable Installation
On 3rd February 2022, SBSS Shanghai welcomed its latest fleet addition, Fu Tai.
The vessel will shortly assume international telecom cable maintenance duties in Asia.
Fu Tai, ex-Bourbon Oceanteam 101, was purchased by SBSS in July 2021 and has since been converted and mobilised to be a cable installation vessel.
Her cable spread design and her newly installed equipment and machinery will primarily be utilized in the Asian submarine cable maintenance market.
Capt. Simon Hibberd, the Managing Director of SBSS commented: “The arrival of cs Fu Tai demonstrates SBSS’s commitment to the submarine cable industry. This investment strengthens the ability of SBSS’s telecom fleet whilst cementing our leading position in the Asian submarine cable installation and maintenance sector.”
