Prysmian Cable Layer Utilizes MakaiLay Software
Makai Ocean Engineering’s MakaiLay software has been commissioned on the cable-laying vessel Giulio Verne by the Prysmian Group.
It is expected that MakaiLay with its power-cable-specific module will be used by the Giulio Verne when it starts working on the North Sea Link installation.
North Sea Link is a subsea power cable interconnector between Norway and UK and will be the longest subsea interconnector in the world upon completion in 2021.
“We made it our priority to extend our popular real-time submarine cable installation management software to submarine power cable installations and we are excited that an industry leader like Prysmian Group has decided to use our software,” said Dr. Jose Andres, president Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc. “We have added specific tools to satisfy the unique demands of power cable installations and we will continue to enhance the software as we receive feedback from our installation partners.”
