Cablelay tensioners

Tracked tensioners designed for handling inter-array, export and HVDC interconnector power cables.

Our cablelay tensioners are proven in the field, and have laid cables on multiple offshore wind farm and interconnector projects.

Cablelay tensioners typically have a two-track, vertical configuration. However, we are able to provide horizontal tensioners, as well as three- and four-track variants.

Our tensioners are designed to improve the safety and efficiency of your offshore operations. We use reliable load- and distance-sensing systems which provide accurate data for your cablelay project.

We specialise in tailoring tensioners to customers’ specific requirements, and previous modifications include containerised solutions and custom distance measuring systems.
