Advanced offshore carousels for pipe- and cable-laying operations

Our carousels are designed to ensure maximum productivity and minimum downtime. Innovative features such as compliant roller mountings, adjustable core diameters and hydraulically adjustable roof positions ensure IHC carousels operate in all weather conditions.

The hydraulic support roller system increases uptime, decreases vessel interface loads and improves system reliability. Safe and efficient operations are achieved through the use of an integrated control and monitoring system.

Carousel spooling and compensator units

Our carousel systems have an excellent track record for safe, reliable and efficient lay operations. Deck compensator units enable semi-automatic system control by maintaining a constant inboard catenary tension. This ensures product is not overloaded and operations are conducted more efficiently.

We also offer tailored spooling solutions to ensure optimal deck space utilisation. Examples include combined level-wind compensator towers incorporating two equipment items into one.
