Submarine cables have become key facilitators of modern life. Telecommunication cables form the backbone of the global communications network, indeed the Internet itself (and therefore this web-site) could not function without them. Submarine power cables have enabled the bulk import/export of electric power for commercial benefit and to cover peak loads. ICPC's aim is to foster a team-working relationship with other seabed users, so that submarine telecommunications and power cables can operate in harmony with other seabed activities.
