Orange Marine orders cabel vessels from VARD

VARD is pleased to announce that Orange Marine has selected ship design from VARD’s extensive design portfolio when expanding their fleet of cable ships.
VARD and Orange Marine’s cooperation goes back to 2012 when VARD was selected for the design and construction of their cable laying and repair vessel of VARD 9 01 design “Pierre de Fermat”. Orange Marine has for the second time chosen VARD as their preferred ship design when adding a cable repair vessel of VARD 9 03 design to their fleet. The vessel will be built by Colombo Dockyard which has experience from building the cable laying and repair vessel of VARD 9 01 design “KDDI Cable Infinity” in 2019 to Kokusai Cable Ship Ltd of Japan.

The VARD 9 03 design for Orange Marine is specially designed for the maintenance of submarine cables, both fiber-optic telecommunication cables and inter-array power cables used in offshore windfarms. VARD has developed the vessel design according to the clients operating requirements with special attention to the vessel hull design in terms of good sea-keeping capabilities and low fuel consumption. Together with its capable maneuverability it is a truly specialized tool for the repair market.
