Coastal Chariot deployed as cable lay vessel

November 04, 2014

Acta Marine’s latest fleet addition, the DP1 Multi purpose vessel Coastal Chariot, recently completed a cable lay project in the UK. 
The vessel was deployed for the cable lay of various fiber optic cables in shallow waters. The large deck space, combined with its shallow draft and its excellent maneuvering capabilities had proven to be very valuable for the Client.

The other Acta Marine DP Multicats continue to be deployed around the world on various marine projects. The Coastal Discovery is contracted upon various projects in West Africa. This vessel is performing anchor handling activities in shallow waters below 4meters combined with 3pt mooring dive support activities. Her DP capabilities are furthermore allowing the Client to also perform accurate pipe lay burials in shallow waters.


The Coastal Challenger, is continuing her long-term deployment in North West Australia with our partner Pacific Tug, where she is assisting a large Cutter Suction Dredger upon the marine constructions works of an LNG plant . Quote: “Congratulations to the Coastal Challenger crew who are consistently keeping DI happy with their positive attitude and commitment to a safe and efficient work site. The vessel has just completed both Class and OVID inspections with great success.”
