Global Marine Bolsters Portland Facility with New Power Cable Carousel

Global Marine Systems has extended its capabilities with the installation of a power cable carousel to store and manage power cables at its Portland Port depot on the south coast of England. 

The company said one OFTO (Offshore Transmission Owner) client is already utilising the facility’s new capability. The purpose-built secured storage facility has been providing fibre optic cable storage for 18 years, and in addition to the new power cable carousels, contains 33 telecoms cable tanks, with a total capacity of 8,750 m3.

The site currently stores 2,000km of telecoms cable, along with over 3,500 universal joint kits and associated equipment including repeaters, equalisers and branching units.

The site was built to specification and is geared to mobilise between power and fibre optic cabling. The 2,000 tonne cable carousel is equipped with a 10 tonne tensioner and works alongside a 15 tonne quayside tensioner to ensure effective cable handling from vessel to shore, and back.
