Balance of Plant
For more than 25 years, we have delivered over 2,485 mi (4000 km) of subsea cable to complex projects. Our engineering and design expertise, along with state-of-the-art facilities, will support the manufacture and delivery of medium- and high-voltage power cables.
We are ideally positioned to serve your global offshore wind, tidal, wave, and interconnector projects with manufacturing facilities in key regions, such as the U.K., the U.S., and Brazil.
Our facilities provide:
- Quay-side access in access of 29.5 ft (9 m) water depth
- Storage access to a fleet of DNV-rated reels or carousels ranging from 300te to 7500te capacity
- Safe loadout by qualified personnel
Design Validation and Testing
Our solutions prove your product and material performance characteristics, assure that the cables are installed within tolerances, and verify engineering calculations for the cable operational design life.
Our Test, Qualification and Reliability Laboratory examines your cable designs to verify fatigue (dynamic and static), crush, impact, tensile with bending over sheath, torsion, and friction. We also perform cable inspection, such as TDR, OTDR, IR, DC, and HV partial discharge testing.
We also design, build, and assemble bespoke carousel storage and loadout systems to store project cables onshore for the lifetime of your project maintenance requirements.
Cable Storage Equipment Rentals
Meet your offshore installation needs with our carousel and tensioner rentals
Our 46 ft-diameter (14 m-diameter) carousels are ideal for a wide range of subsea products, from inter-array cables to export cables, flexible pipelines, and umbilicals. The carousel system is designed for single lift installation.
The system can be used as a standard carousel for typical flexible products or as part of our PREP system. In this case, the carousel can be used in both horizontal and vertical orientations.
Additionally, we own and lease two 10-ton hydraulic drive tensioners designed to complement the carousel system. Each tensioner has a dedicated hydraulic power unit (HPU) and control unit. A complete hose set and spares kit is included as part of the rental.
