The cable lay system will be used for installation of interarray power cables and its cable protection system in offshore wind farms. The system's features will provide the client with a marked advantage during normal lay operations, Royal IHC said.
Royal IHC will deliver the entire spread, including elevated cable highway, chutes, working habitats, quadrant handling system, active heave compensated winch, A&R winches and deck winches. This will be delivered with an integrated control system linking between new and client owner-furnished equipment.
The modular cable lay spread will be delivered with a new generation centralized control suit. Careful consideration has also been brought to the mobilization of the vessel, adopting a modular system that will minimize the effort, timescale and risk traditionally associated with this stage of a campaign.
