PHOTO: Maersk Connector Executes Its First Engineered Grounding

Maersk Connector has performed its first engineered grounding at Walney out of Heysham in the West of England.

This operation was the first ever for Maersk Connector and the first in Maersk Supply Service’s history. The onshore cable-laying capability was carried out together with client DeepOcean.

The vessel went in with the high tide and grounded again with the low tide, using strategic anchor lines to hold position during the operation. Over the course of three days the Maersk Supply Service Captain and crew successfully grounded Maersk Connector five times to connect a subsea cable line to onshore facilities.

“Maersk Connector’s special features have been developed with the aim of adding value to the client’s operation, and it is very rewarding for us as a vessel owner to have Maersk Connector as part of our 40-plus strong fleet and offer her highly exclusive cable-laying capabilities to DeepOcean.” -MSS COO, Claus Bachmann.
