Swan Hunter has completed the loadout of Norther offshore wind farm export cable onto Van Oord’s Nexus cable lay vessel.
Approximately 29 kilometers of HVAC export cable, totaling 3150Te, was spooled onto the Nexus vessel from the DOC-Swan Hunter cable storage and spooling yard, Vlissingen, The Netherlands.
Swan Hunter’s director, Gerard Kroese, stated: “This loadout marks the completion of the third cable storage project this year for Swan Hunter. It helps to establish our proven track record in providing a complete package of cable storage and handling services that we can offer our clients; including storage facilities, equipment, personnel, and engineering and project management services.”
The export cable was spooled in to the onshore storage carousel earlier this year in Q2 2018.
