ELA Container Equips VBMS’ Cable Layer

ELA Container has recently delivered an ELA offshore multipurpose room to VBMS, which will be used on board its cable laying / multipurpose vessel MV Ndeavor, built and outfitted in 2013 by Boskalis.

After delivery of the multipurpose room to the VBMS warehouse in Moerdijk in The Netherlands, the container was transferred to a control room to be used to operate its ROV trenchers, which lay and bury power cables in shallow and deep water. The control room provides capacity for two persons who can monitor the ROV on multiple screens.

“Since the lead time was very short and the deadline of the project was approaching rapidly, we were able to deliver the container from stock on very short notice. The container was painted in VBMS house colours, enabling our customer to install all their equipment and run tests before starting the project on board,” says Frank ter Haak, business development manager at ELA Container Offshore.

“After arrival of the container we were very pleased with the high quality finishing and the superb insulation. We were particularly pleased with the fact that both A60 marine doors were equipped with a window, in order to have day light entering the room during work shifts,” says Jan Bes, subsea equipment supervisor at VBMS.
