Inter-array cable-lay vessel

Specialised vessel for offshore wind cable-lay projects

The most cost effective and efficient array cable-lay vessel designed to help you win cable installation projects. This vessel spends the majority of its time offshore installing cables using a cable-lay system specifically designed for repeating installation sequences of large amounts of array cables.

  • Fast loadouts
  • Specially designed for deeper water
  • Correct size for inter-array, lean design of material flows and storage
  • Large deck space via carousels below deck
  • In-line quadrant for safe, fast and efficient pull-in operations

Exactly the right capacity

The design of the inter-array cable-lay vessel is based on extensive knowledge of marine cable-lay operations. From loadout at the cable manufacturer to burial of the cable into the seabed, this is currently the most efficient design, with all the correct dimensions.

The two carousels below deck can be loaded simultaneously, and offer protection to the cable against environmental influences. This results in extra deck space for containers with protection pieces. The containers are placed around the large quadrant that makes operations in deeper water possible, while creating a good flow of materials.
