UK-based trade organization Subsea Cable UK has become the European Subsea Cables Association (ESCA) in a move to reflect its broader membership and scope.

The organization made the announcement following its annual meeting.  ECSA noted that almost half of the members of Subsea Cable UK were non-UK and that its scope had moved beyond UK waters to encompass European waters and beyond.

The principal goal of ESCA is the promotion of marine safety, safeguarding of subsea cables from man-made and natural hazards and protecting the rights of operators to install and maintain cables.
