Prysmian Group has announced an investment of approximately €350 million for two new cable-laying vessels. The first cable-laying vessel will be an evolution of the Monna Lisa class. With a length of approximately 185 m and a breadth of about 34 m, the new vessel will be equipped with advanced cable installation solutions, such as three carousels for a total capacity of 19,000 tonnes.
 
A bollard pull in excess of 180 tonnes will allow the vessel to perform complex installation operations of simultaneous cable lay and burial (up to 4 cables) with a variety of ploughs. The vessel will be equipped with DP3 positioning and seakeeping systems and will be operational by beginning of 2027.
 
The other vessel will be the evolution of the Ulisse class, with a length of approximately 167 m and a breadth of about 40 m and will be equipped by two carousels (one of them split in two concentric sections) for a total cable loading capacity of 10,000 tonnes. The DP2 positioning, and seakeeping systems and an eight- point mooring system will enable the ship to meet its operating requirements specialised in shallow-water cable laying and burial installation. The vessel will be operational by the first half of 2025.
