WIND completes another transport of high voltage subsea cable
With the transfer of 26 km of 155kV subsea cable in the port of Eemshaven this week, specialist provider of logistics services for subsea cables WIND has succesfully completed its latest full scope cable transport project. The cable is for delivery to a large European TSO and will be used to connect an offshore windfarm to a substation.
Last January WIND loaded the cables with a total weight of 2,300 ton in a carousel on board the transport vessel at the factory berth of cable manufacturer Zhongtian Technology Submarine Cable Co., Ltd (ZTT) in Nantong, China. The cable arrived in The Netherlands on time and was discharged by WIND directly from the transport vessel to a cable lay vessel. “With this cable transport project, we have succesfully concluded a significant contract for ZTT” comments Erik Thomas, WIND commercial director. “We look forward to working with them again.”. This latest project allowed WIND to demonstrate its abilities to the fullest. Services provided included selection and chartering of the transport vessel, engineering of load-out procedures including risk assessments and method statements, seafastening and dynamic strength calculations, supply of specialist cable equipment and experienced cable crews for cable transfers in China and The Netherlands, mobilisation and de-mobilisation works and last but not least overall project management.
