Submarine Cable Salvage is owned and operated​ by Ocean Networks and is funded through a private investment group with a focus on protecting the environment.

On a global scale, Submarine Cable Salvage repurposes Out Of Service (OOS) submarine cable systems for the Ocean Science community. We identify, procure, survey & test the OOS systems and deploy cabled ocean observatories (sensors) for 

environmental studies and disaster mitigation.


Repurposing OOS submarine cable systems is a
cost effective and environmently friendly solution for ocean observatories.
