Swan Hunter has recently completed the export cable load-in operations as part of a Belgian offshore wind project.

The load-in operations involved spooling of approximately 28 kilometers of 261 millimeter export cable, weighing around 3,300 metric tonnes.

The export cable was brought to DOC-Swan Hunter’s Storage & Cable Spooling Yard in Vlissingen via cable transportation vessel. The cable will be stored in DOC-Swan Hunter’s newly build 23m basket carousel. The cable load-out is scheduled for Q3 2018.

Swan Hunter’s director, Gerard Kroese. stated: “We are delighted to see the successful completion of these cable spooling operations at our DOC-Swan Hunter’s Storage & Cable Spooling Yard. These operations did see the first use of our newly build carousel in combination with our new loading tower. We are very proud of reaching the tremendous milestone in building this new equipment in time and soon afterwards finalising the spooling operations.

We did achieve this as a result of a tremendous effort by our personnel in combination with designers, engineers, subcontractors and suppliers over recent months. The support from the local supply chain has been immense. The cable is now covered with UV cable protection materials until load-out operations.”
