Solutions wins contract for supply vessel, equipment and services for cable transport and loadouts
Following the letter of intent in May, Oceanteam Solutions (OTS) has recently signed a contract with a European cable manufacturer regarding the supply of a transport vessel, turntable and auxiliary equipment for the transport of cables from South Europe to Scandinavia. The project is planned to be executed in summer 2017.
Besides supporting the cable transport and loadout with a transport vessel and a turntable, Oceanteam will assist the multiple cable loadouts in the appointed ports by supplying equipment and a professional cable handling crew. The turntable system and auxiliary equipment will be loaded on the vessel at Oceanteam’s own quay facilities in Velsen Noord, the Netherlands, and subsequently will be shipped to South Europe. There, the cable will be spooled before heading to Scandinavia for the cable loadout.
Lex van Doorn, managing director at OTS, welcomes the new partnership. “We are happy that cable manufacturers have faith in our company. Needless to say, they can rely on our extensive know-how and experience in the cable handling and transport industry and our excellent equipment plus staff. We are looking forward to bringing this project to a successful conclusion together.”
Earlier this year, Oceanteam performed a cable loadout for another client. In this project, OTS was responsible for the supply of all quayside equipment (turntables, tensioners, quadrants, cable highways and a custom built splicing tent) including a team of supervisors, equipment operators and spoolers.
Oceanteam has a long track record in cable and umbilical services. Interested in Oceanteam’s cable transport and handling equipment and services? Find an overview of our cable solutions here.
