Aquatic completed Norther Export Cable Storage Project with Swan Hunter

Aquatic has successfully completed the full work package for Swan Hunter (NE) Ltd which involved the spooling of the final length of cable for the Norther Offshore Windfarm Export Cable Storage Project at the storage and spooling yard, Vlissingen, The Netherlands.

Following on from the success of last year’s integration of Aquatic’s Tensioner and Carousel Control Cabin onto Swan Hunter’s Loading Tower, Aquatic was awarded the transpooling part of the work. Aquatic’s personnel operated the carousel, tensioner and loading arm, and performed the onshore spooling.
Approximately 1.5 km of remaining submarine power cable was transpooled out of the carousel to the vessel.

Aquatic’s equipment is strategically stored on site in Vlissingen and the proximity has allowed Aquatic to be very effective in terms of mobilisation, demobilisation, and logistics costs.
