Global Marine Group, have installed a 2,000-tonne capacity power cable carousel at Port of Blyth’s Battleship Wharf terminal.
The strategically located cable carousel, provided by Swan Hunter, offers Global Offshore increased operational flexibility with short-term, local cable storage, reduced mobilisation times and improved cost efficiencies for their customers. The new carousel, which is equipped with a 10-tonne tensioner and modular loading tower, ensures effective cable handling from vessel to shore, and back, also offers short-term options for clients requiring reliable cable storage on the northeast coast of England.
Mike Daniel, Managing Director at Global Offshore, said,
“The introduction of this new cable storage carousel enables us to reduce cable transportation costs as well as offering quicker mobilisation to aid our regular offshore operations in the North Sea. “The facility also affords us the ability to monitor and maintain these precious assets closer to our operational base on site, to ensure they are ready and available for use on installation and maintenance projects at short notice.”
The first loading of the carousel took place earlier this month from the Global Symphony, which had returned to the port after a seven-day umbilical installation campaign in the North Sea.
