Briggs Marine


Briggs Marine have been using Blue spider software for over a year, where it has been successfully employed on over 10 cable repairs and installations.

The software has proven itself in complex operations, when working in close proximity to seabed structures, with project support vessels in attendance.

Its intuitive operation enables our vessel operators to utilise the system with little instruction.

Operations Director, Briggs Marine



Bluespider has run on our ship Fu An for about 2 months, Fu An has done 4 cable repairs in YZ using the Bluespider.

Compare to Makai and QINSy, Bluespider is easy to handle and had some function that the other software don't have for the cable repair, such as setting a target.

We are planning to install it for the other two ships: Fu Hai and Bold Maverick soon.
