ihc_inter_array_cable_lay_vessel

IHC has introduced a new inter-array cable-laying vessel designed to facilitate more efficient offshore wind farm installations. 

The vessel is approximately 106 meters long with breath of 22 meters.

According to IHC, the new design should reduce costs for inter-array cable-laying operations by 20 to 30%.

The vessel is equipped with two 1,250t carousels below deck, which can be loaded simultaneously.

Cable storage below deck leaves space for an inline quadrant with a 50m track, making operations in deeper water possible. Containers to store the cable protection systems are positioned around the quadrant to ensure a safe and efficient flow of materials.
