Cable-Laying Vessel KIZUNA

Equipped with an ROV, the vessel can handle emergency maintenance of submarine communication cables which require quick restoration work. The vessel also carries two deck cranes (5 tons and 10 tons). Combined with the stern working deck, the upper open-hatch type working deck provides a spacious working space. So, the vessel can be used not only as a cable laying vessel but also as a multipurpose vessel for support services in time of disaster restoration.
