Technip Gets Cable Handler from Osbit Power

Osbit Power, headquartered in Riding Mill, Northumberland, has successfully supplied a bespoke cable handling system to Technip Offshore Wind, in support of its cable installation operations at Dong Energy’s Westermost Rough offshore wind farm.

The quadrant system allows safe and efficient deployment and pull-in of infield cables, managing touchdown on the seabed and ensuring protection of the product as it is pulled into position at the turbine foundation.

Installed on the support vessel, the system has been supporting operations since early June, following mobilisation of the deck spread at A&P Tyne.

Designed to ensure safe and efficient cable deployment and pull-in operations. OP’s modular deck spread can be readily mobilised to a range of vessels, ensuring flexibility for future projects. OP’s spread includes cable highways, cable protection quadrant, quadrant trackways, overboarding chute, quadrant handling winch and control unit.

The system incorporates a number of safety features such as hydraulic locking of the quadrant at predefined positions, to ensure protection of personnel when the system is under tension during operations. Close cooperation between OP Engineers and Technip’s team was essential as Technip worked towards a challenging mobilisation schedule.

OP’s Managing Director, Tony Trap, comments: ” This is another milestone project for Osbit Power. We have expanded our activities significantly over the past 12 months with a series of contracts delivering a range of back deck and subsea equipment to leading offshore installation contractors. This first contract for a cable deployment system, successfully delivered against very challenging schedule constraints, again demonstrates the strength of the OP team and its ability to cooperatively supply customised equipment spreads in short lead times. We are delighted to have played our part in supporting the installation of infield cables in this important project for Technip Offshore Wind and Dong Energy.”
