A recently signed contract makes Ocean-Tec Systems an EIVA representative. The UK-based company will be focusing on promoting the EIVA NaviSuite software dedicated to cable lay operations on a global level.
The cable lay features of NaviSuite come as part of the NaviSuite Beka software. With this partnership, we at EIVA look forward to strengthening our focus on cable lay and cable route design, not in the least as the Ocean-Tec Systems team will also be involved in the further development of the software.
Ocean-Tec Systems are headquartered in Darlington, and specialise in consultancy, engineering and client representation for the cable installation and offshore construction markets.
‘The features EIVA have developed in their cable lay application show the level of investment the company is making in the development of their software. I have personally used EIVA software since 2006, and was impressed by the continual development of their products. As Ocean-Tec have a long-standing working relationship with EIVA, having previously delivered training courses in the UK, becoming an EIVA representative was a logical step. We look forward to this new chapter in our working relationship and to assisting EIVA continue their software development,’ said Ocean-Tec MD Bob McLeod.
The Ocean-Tec Systems staff have worked with numerous cable lay companies through the years, on projects ranging from pre-installation works for transatlantic fibre optic cables through to procedure reviews on behalf of local authorities for renewable cable installations. Within this swathe of projects, they have also supplied onshore support to installation entities in both oil & gas and cable sectors. With experience in both fibre optic and power sectors Ocean-Tec Systems are familiar with all the components of the cable lay workflow, as well as all the relevant details to be considered when establishing the setup necessary to carry out this type of operation.
‘We believe we have a strong software product for cable lay operations, and we want to ensure that those considering investing in it are met with the best possible service. Ocean-Tec Systems has considerable expertise in this type of operation, so with the new representative agreement we are able to ensure our customers a cable lay specialist as a point of contact’, said EIVA CEO Jeppe Nielsen.
