UK-based MAATS Tech has been awarded a contract to supply a deck spread for Nexans’ newbuild cable lay vessel the ‘Nexans Aurora’ scheduled for delivery in Q2 2021.

The main item is a 10,000te cable carousel, which will be a concentric ‘carousel in a carousel’ design and therefore able to process two cables simultaneously, or alternatively it can store a single length weighing 10,000te. Other equipment to be delivered includes a capstan hold back, two deck tensioners, laywheels and integrated control system.

MAATS Tech managing director, Lisa Edwards, said, “We are very pleased to have worked with Nexans to get to this point and look forward to delivering the equipment for an exciting new vessel in this market.”

Knut Flage, Vessel operations manager at Nexans added: “We are pleased to award this critical contract to MAATS Tech, having been impressed with their ongoing support and experience leading up to this milestone. The vessel is a significant and strategic investment for Nexans as it will increase our installation capacity, and securing the right supply chain is critical to its future success as a key piece of the global cable lay industry.”
