DOC-Swan Hunter Delivers First Cable Spooling in Vlissingen Yard

DOC-Swan Hunter, a joint venture partnership between Dutch Offshore Contractors and Swan Hunter, has completed spooling operations for their first onshore cable storage project at the newly established storage & cable spool yard in Vlissingen, The Netherlands.

The re-scheduled and expedited project to spool and store over 3,000Te of export cable was for an undisclosed Dutch customer and cable manufacturer / installer.

The project was successfully bid, won and executed in a very short timescale, the company said.

The 7,000Te onshore capacity basket carousel, loading tower and tensioners were set up, commissioned and operational within 24 hours after the equipment was loaded-in to the DOC-Swan Hunter facilities from a previous project demobilization.

DOC-Swan Hunter’s director, Dave Hangoor, stated: “Securing this last minute project has been a great success to the DOC-Swan Hunter partnership. Considering the very tight timescale from project demobilisation, barge transportation, load-in via Ro-Ro operations to set-up and commissioning of the equipment, allowing us to spooling approximately 73 kilometers of product within seven days, a great effort from our team and the supporting subcontractors.”
