Due to climate change we see that the development of wind farms will accelerate, resulting in a growing demand for cable lay capacity. Offshore windfarms will only further grow in size and will be located in ever deeper waters. Royal IHC understands the challenges of cable lay and the requirements for a cost-effective and safe cable lay operation. In our mission driven designs we optimise the deck lay out with efficient material flows.
At Royal IHC we have experience in co-creating the perfect design for efficient operation and a sustainable performance. That’s why we emphasise the importance of endurance, payload, crew safety and comfort. For each cable laying ship, whether it be new-build or conversion, together we will find the best possible integrated cable lay solution. Besides inter array, interconnector, export cable lay, and fiber optic cable lay systems and vessels, we also design and deliver LARS systems for carriage, deployment and towing of subsea vehicles such as ploughs. Offering a complete range to create the optimal integrated vessel for your cable laying projects.
We proudly serve our clients with cable lay solutions. Our delivery scope ranges from design services to turnkey delivery of complete, newbuild cablelay vessels or spreads. For existing vessels, Royal IHC offers various cablelay services such as conversion engineering, renovations, upgrades, equipment rental, maintenance and consultancy.
We optimise the workability by applying a holistic analysis. The vessel design and mission equipment such as the dynamic positioning system and cable laying system are integrated in the design of the vessel. We combine vessel motions, DP system behavior, cable lay operations (such as speed and heading) and weather conditions in our proprietary analysis tools during the design phase, in order to guarantee that the vessel’s workability will meet your mission requirements.
To contribute to a sustainable maritime industry, our cable laying ships will have a reduced energy consumption and minimized carbon footprint. Our vessels are prepared for alternative fuels like methanol.
