In addition to the above annual membership fee, there is also a one-off joining fee of £1000 for Full membership and £500 for Associate membership, together with an annual contribution towards the cost of the European Subsea Cables Association Liaison Officer, which is presently £1000 per Full member and £100 per Associate member.
Note: Full members (cable owners and operators) are required to include their cables within the Kis-Orca project as a condition of joining the European Subsea Cables Association. See www.kis-orca.org for details of this cable protection service. There is a separate fee for this service currently payable direct to Seafish (the supplier of the service) through the European Subsea Cables Association. The cost to European Subsea Cables Association Full members is based on the percentage length of cable a member may have included under the project and/or the number of turbines a member may have in their developments.
