Saipem Italy has recently awarded Hengtong Submarine Power Cable’s first contract for dynamic cable that connects a drilling floater, Scarabeo 5, deployed in Congo. 

Despite the technical challenges ahead, Hengtong will deliver the cable and its highly customised accessories by the middle of 2025 to facilitate the first LNG production of the Congo Nene project in December 2025.

Scarabeo 5 is one of the best-in-class units of its generation. The unit can also operate “moored thruster assisted”, reducing fuel consumption and environmental impacts. The rig has operated in a subarctic environment for over 20 years.
