Osbit Backs DeepOcean’s Inter-Array Cable Project

Osbit said that its quadrant handling system, designed and built for offshore contractor DeepOcean, has completed its first inter-array cable installation job for undisclosed international developer.

The system has facilitated the laying of two complete cables per day in the first stage of its deployment from the Maersk Recorder vessel.

Osbit modified its existing system to fit the vessel’s deck layout.

The company also upgraded its equipment, including the addition of two new stern chutes and associated grillages. A new quadrant handling A-Frame was also integrated, to streamline the most complex handling operation throughout the lay cycle, Osbit explained.

Brendon Hayward, banaging director of Osbit, said: “We continue to focus on developing new, technology-led solutions to support contractor operations in the construction of offshore wind farms. The success of this project highlights the effectiveness of our collaborative, objective-driven approach, which ensures that our systems achieve efficient and productive offshore operations.”

Pierre Boyde, commercial director at DeepOcean, said: “Osbit’s understanding of our requirements and its engineers’ expertise has produced one of the most advanced quadrant handling systems on the market. The system gives DeepOcean an advantage over our competitors in multiple key areas, including speed, and personnel and product safety.”
