Subsea cable systems design, installation and maintenance firm
Global Marine Systems Limited, has added the 6,200 ton cable
deadweight CS Recorder to its fleet.

Built in 2000, the vessel formerly known as the Maersk Recorder,
has previously been chartered by Global Marine for numerous cable
installation projects and has since successfully completed work
in the oil and gas and renewables sectors. The newly named CS
Recorder is intended to support the telecoms installation
business growth over the next 5-10 years, with a number of
critical projects scheduled during 2018, 2019 and 2020.

CS Recorder will be equipped with a plough system and Remotely
Operated Trenching Vehicle (ROV) to ensure it is fully prepared
to undertake the full range of telecoms cable installation
projects.

"The addition of this latest vessel to our fleet demonstrates our
continuing commitment to ensuring the appropriate assets are
available to meet our customers' needs across the globe, and to
our core business of telecoms cable installation, even in a
market where the current trend is for assets to be relinquished,
rather than added," said Bruce Neilson-Watts, Managing Director,
Telecoms at Global Marine.

The CS Recorder joins Global Marine's current fleet of 25
vessels, which now consists of four maintenance vessels, (Cable
Retriever, Pacific Guardian, Wave Sentinel and Cable Innovator);
three installation vessels, (CS Recorder, C.S. Sovereign and
Networker); and 18 CWind Crew Transfer Vessels. She replaces the
Cable Innovator following her reassignment in the fourth quarter
of 2016 to become a dedicated maintenance vessel for the North
America Maintenance Zone (NAZ) submarine cable contract; a
contract running through to the end of 2024. The CS Recorder is
expected to be available for use in the fleet for installation
projects at the end of the first quarter 2017.
