Offshore contractor Jan De Nul will install two 115 kV cables, supplied by Nexans Norway, for the Marjan Gas Oil Separation Plan (GOSP’s) project executed by McDermott, the company said on Thursday.
Both cables, with a total cable weight of 8,500 tonnes have been loaded and will now be transported and installed in one single trip with Jan De Nul’s cable laying vessel Isaac Newton.
The Marjan GOSP’s project is the first project for the Isaac Newton.
The vessel is the latest addition to Jan De Nul’s fleet and, according to the company, it is the largest cable laying vessel of its kind, capable to transport and install over 10,000 tonnes of cable per single trip.
The largest out of two carousels on board has a carrying capacity up to 7,400 tonnes, suited for transport and installation of the longest and heaviest of the two cables, with a length of 87 km and a weight of 7,300 tonnes.
