Swan Hunter Adds Onshore and Offshore Carousel System

Swan Hunter together with its partner DOC, has taken delivery of a new 1000Te capacity modular onshore and offshore carousel system.

The system offers clients a flexible product handling equipment solution within the onshore storage, offshore installation, and marine transportation markets, Swan Hunter said.

The principle comprises three interchangeable components, specifically utilized dependant on the product loading location. Modular liftable storage baskets of varying capacities are coupled with either a hydraulically powered turntable or standard SPMTs to provide basket rotation and support.

The hydraulic turntable has integrated hydraulic lift rollers, that allow it to be pulled away from beneath the basket when supported via crane or SPMTs. These inbuilt functions, allow for the loading of multiple baskets using a single turntable or SPMT spread.

Upon completion of the onsite assembly DOC director, Dave Hangoor said: “We are very pleased to have another item of new build equipment constructed here at the DOC-Swan Hunter Cable Storage and Spooling Yard. This 1000Te system nicely compliments our smaller and larger carousels, further increasing our cable handling and storage capacity, and allowing us to offer various solutions to our client’s requirements”.

The equipment is now due to undergo onsite commissioning works and will be operational on it’s first cable handling and storage project in early Q2 this year.
