A branded high quality drinking water sourced from the ocean which is both local and abundant. Energy requirements are fulfilled through renewable sources including either solar or wind power. The water is filtered or desalinated to a high standard and can either be used for municipal or industrial purposes. Additionally, the water is bottled in biodegradable or recyclable bottles. The water can be mineralised during the bottling process and branded as a sustainable local solution. Watch our latest video here.

Telcom Cable

Subsea Infrastructure has been involved in the subsea telcom cable market since the mid-2000s. Following the oversupply of new fibre optic subsea cables in the 1998-2002 period, there was insufficient data demand to fill the capacity. This resulted in low growth in the sector apart from the requirement for a few strategic routes. Read more.


In 2008 Subsea Infrastructure installed a modular desalination plant near Limassol in Cyprus. The latest reverse osmosis technology and energy-saving devices were employed. The plant was delivered in an unprecedented 8 months.

The plant, located at Moni, produced over 20,000 cubic metres of drinking water per day and provided the perfect interim solution to the serious water shortages that regularly affect the island of Cyprus.

Following the termination of the contract, the plant was dismantled, refurbished, split into three 7,000 m3/day sections and transported for new projects in Australia and the Middle East.

In total, over 20 million cubic metres of drinking water was successfully delivered to the Government of Cyprus and following the project the site was returned in an environmentally sensitive state for further development.

East Coast USA – Long Term, Scalable, Water Provision

SubSea Infrastructure recently worked on a feasibility study to provide a number of growing conurbations on the East coast of the USA with an offshore water supply solution covering a period of 40-years.

The complexity of the situation was such that the supply profile started very low at 2.8MIGD (10,000m3) rising to 75MIGD (285,000m3) over 40-years.

Additionally, minimisation of environmental impact was critical as was the desire to minimise the loss of prime, green field, beach front, real estate to industrial plants.

The highly flexible and easilly scalable nature of the SubSea Infrastructure offshore solution meant we were able to engineer three alternative senarios that ensured an almost infinitely adaptable approach could be developed.

Importantly the only impact onshore was the need for a narrow corridoor for the water delivery pipeline to the network interconnection. Since this would be buried after installation there would be effectively no significant impact on the beach front environment and no visual pollution whatsoever.

By deploying the desalination plants offshore from floating vessels an added advantage is the ability to disperse the brine discharge more widely. In this regard SubSea Infrastructure has a patented dispersal system. In addition, where the marine environment is ultra sensitive, we are able to demonstrate a brine dilution system prior to ever discharging the brine stream into the sea.

Saudi Arabia – 2 x 26,000m3 SWRO desalination barges

In 2007 SubSea Infrastructure responded to a tender for the provision of two desalination barges, each providing 26,000m3 of water/per day.

This marks the first commercial tender for medium-to-large-scale SWRO desalination from floating units and SubSea Infrastructure submitted a technical and well detailed response.

While SubSea Infrastructure did not secure this tender the barges were built and are currently in service, having been fully employed since 2009.
