ABOUT SUBSEA ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES (SES)
SUBSEA ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES (SES) was founded on the principal of responsibly recovering and recycling Out-Of-Service (OOS) submarine telecommunications cables and in the process providing an opportunity for the marine environment to return to a more natural state.
We believe the conversion of OOS submarine telecommunications cables into high quality, recycled materials is both a viable commercial proposition as well as an environmental imperative.
Our mission is to responsibly and economically recover redundant cable systems from the seabed and re-introduce their constituent materials back into the global value chain. Read more

The active submarine cable systems that crisscross the ocean floors are a critical part of the infrastructure of our modern, interconnected world. Recovery of Out-Of-Service cable systems therefore requires strict adherence to a core set of risk management procedures at all planning and operational levels. SES applies all applicable International Cable Protection Committee (ICPC) recommendations, for the recovery of OOS submarine cables, as the basis for its risk management procedures and in most cases exceeds these industry accepted best practices.
