IHC’s Plough for ‘Maersk Connector’ Cable Layer

IHC has secured an order for a power cable plough, destined for DeepOcean’s new cable installation vessel ‘Maersk Connector’.

The equipment comprises a 3.3 meter trench depth power cable plough, a sea state 5 LARS and tow winch. The 300 kW jetting system has been designed in close collaboration with DeepOcean.

DeepOcean’s Maersk Connector, designed and built by Damen, will be the only power cable vessel with grounding capability, DP2, 7 point mooring and a IHC LARS having both tow winch render and constant tension capabilities, IHC wrote in a press release.

DeepOcean’s Commercial Director, Pierre Boyde said: “This is a key piece of technology for our state of the art cable vessel Maersk Connector. It enables DeepOcean to offer significantly better power cable installation and protection that has previously not been available in the market. We are delighted to work with IHC in introducing this game changing technology in combination with employing the North East UK supply chain.”

The plough system will be designed and largely built in the UK.
