Typically, cable installation activities start with a pre-lay grapnel run to clear debris from the cable route or an alternative method to check for debris. The export cable will be collected from the load-out port or the cable manufacturer. The installation of export power cables requires a dedicated cable lay vessel (CLV) or barge. The CLV or barge must have a turntable or cable carousel storage facility to load, transport and install these cables. The properties of the specific cable will define cable-handling limits, such as the bend radius limit, which the installers must be aware of when designing the handling and installation methods.
