Nexans to Add New Cable-Laying Vessel to Its Fleet

Nexans informed that it has started the construction of a new cable-laying vessel for submarine HV cable systems installation.

“The construction of this new cable-laying vessel is a fundamental milestone in our commitment to cleaner energy,“ said Arnaud Poupart-Lafarge, Nexans CEO. “For many decades, Nexans has been acting for energy transition and sustainable development. In this next exciting chapter of our capacity to meet customer expectations, the cutting-edge technology of the new ship will enable Nexans to support countries in their development of the unlimited potential of renewable power generation.”

Built by Uljanik, a Croatia-based shipyard, the new Nexans vessel is designed for worldwide installation of large volumes of HVDC and HVAC cable systems. The vessel covers the complete Nexans submarine product range, and has a 10 000-tonne capacity turntable, the company said.

The new vessel is designed by Skipsteknisk AS. The laying equipment allows the vessel to perform complex installation operations of flexible products in shallow to deep water.

“Together with our legendary vessel CLV Nexans Skagerrak, the new ship will reinforce Nexans’ position as a leading player in the growing submarine HV cabling market,” said Dirk Steinbrink, senior executive vice president High Voltage and Underwater Cable Business Group at Nexans. “With the advanced technology, impressive capacity and the many cable-laying capabilities, this vessel will be one of Nexans’ key strategic assets.”

The cable-laying vessel is expected to be delivered and start operations by Q3 2020.
