Nice Shot, man!

The vessel was built by Dannebrog Shipyard in Denmark and delivered in 1982 but has been converted in 2002 with more powerful thrusters. Peter Faber is designed to carry out cable laying operations, handle cable ploughs, ROV perform cable maintenance. The ship is a highly efficient cable ship with the most advanced cable hauling machinery onboard. It is the only vessel in the fleet capable of doing cable repairs over the bow an advantage in strong currents.
