Multi-Purpose Cable Lay Barge - VETAG 8

This Cable Lay Barge is designed by a team of TAGU Offshore Thailand and is approved by DNVGL classification.

VETAG 8 is capable to operate with 1.000 tons of cable load in a water depth of only 1,5 meters and certified for cable lay operations in a restricted service area (RSA) of 20 nautical miles. Since 2014 VETAG 8 has completed numerous successful cable lay projects in Europe.

Near Shore Cable Protection

TAGU considers the Cable Shore-end Installation as our most expertise skill.

  • If the water is too shallow for the main lay vessel to approach safely, a smaller
    shallow drafted vessel may be lay used to lay the shore end with floats.
  • In water depths where there are risks due to fishing and other man-made activities
    such as anchoring etc., the cable is generally protected with articulated pipes and/or
    buried to a target depth of approximately 1 meter.
  • The cable is laid to conform to the contours of the seabed to avoid cable lying in
  • Cable Protection & Stabilization by different methodologies are the keys for a Long
    Live Cable vision.

Submarine Cable Engineering

Our Bangkok consulting team consists of experienced naval architects and engineers qualified to provide a broad spectrum in marine consultancy services ranging from RAMS - Risk Analysis and Method Statement Document, Submarine Cable Analysis, Assessment of Station Keeping Capability of DP Vessels, HSE & QHSE Documents.

There is always a certain risk in spending excessive time and cost on a submarine cable installation process. Therefore, it is crucial for contractor to predict the process characteristics in order to improve the safety and economic performance of the project. The investigation into the dynamic behaviour of a cable during installation could be theoretically conducted with the aim of improving cable installation for safety, operational, and commercial value. The workability of a vessel from cable laying operation's point of view is governed by the cable integrity design criteria such as maximum tension, touch-down-point tension, side-wall-pressure and the minimum bending radius. In practice during cable-laying the touch-down-point tension and minimum bend radius cannot be measured. Therefore, a dynamic analysis of the subsea cable is required to determine the cable motions and tension fluctuations.

Experienced and skilled engineers are at the core of our business, utilising a range of proprietary and commercially available software. So, we can optimise the performance of cables during installation
and help prevent load out or installation damage that could lead to downtime and failure.

Determination of operational window, in which vessels can perform their tasks safely and efficiently by maintaining theirs position and heading, is one of our marine advisory services. Reliable documentation of a vessel's position and heading keeping capabilities is vital for planning and execution of safe and reliable operations with dynamic positioning (DP) vessels. Analysis of system performance can be carried out in order to optimise design and ensure sufficient appropriate operability.
