Successful Transpooling for Swan Hunter

Aquatic has successfully completed a major work package for Swan Hunter (NE) Ltd which involved the modifications and integration of Aquatic’s Tensioner and Carousel Control Cabin onto Swan Hunter’s Loading Tower.

Building on their solid track record, Aquatic’s in-house engineering team designed a system allowing the control of Swan Hunter’s Carousel and Loading Arm from one single control cabin supplied by Aquatic.

Following on from the success of the equipment integration, Aquatic was further awarded the transpooling part of the work. Aquatic’s personnel operated the carousel, tensioner and loading arm and performed the onshore spooling of a submarine power cable from a Heavy Lift Vessel (HLV). The cable is currently stored in a Swan Hunter basket carousel at the Dutch Offshore Contractor (DOC) – Swan Hunter storage and spooling yard in Vlissigen, Netherlands.
