Alewijnse Kits Out DEME’s Cable Layer

System integrator Alewijnse Marine has completed electrical outfitting works on board DEME’s new subsea cable layer Living Stone.

The Living Stone has been designed to support wind farm installation and interconnector operations and recently started its first assignment at the Hornsea Project One wind farm, currently being developed off the North Sea coast of the UK.

Alewijnse Marine was responsible for significant elements of the electrical outfitting on board this vessel.

The contract included the installation and connecting of cables to the DP back up room, installation of the helideck equipment and heat tracing for the FIFI system, connecting of fiber optic cables, modification of the CCTV system in the carousel and other installation works and commissioning assistance.

DEME’s choice of Alewijnse Marine for the electrical works was based on the strong track-record that Alewijnse has built up in supporting DEME with its specialist skills in the construction of previous vessels. This includes projects undertaken on IHC’s Minerva and Scheldt River last year, which involved similar installation and commissioning activities,” the company said in a press release.

The 160-metre Living Stone is designed to lay deep-sea cables linking offshore wind farms and the mainland. In addition, the vessel is also equipped for the positioning of rocks using a vertical fall pipe system that can reach depths of up to 1,000 metres. Additional features include a cable capacity of more than 10,000 tonnes, an advanced cable laying system, dual-fuel (MGO –LNG) engines and a DP3 system.
