The cable ship Wave Sentinel arrived this morning and tied up at pier 9 alongside another cable ship, IT Interceptor. This generally means a transfer of cable from one ship to another. Cable is a notoriously difficult cargo to transport, requiring special holds and gear. IT Interceptor is registered in Barbados, but is operated by IT International, the Canadian cable company. Wave Sentinel is operated by Global Marine Systems of the UK.
Wave Sentinel was built in 1995 and is of a modern design-working the cable over the stern only. IT Interceptor , built in 1988, is of a traditional design, working over bow and stern.
