Swan Hunter has completed work to spool export cables into storage baskets for the 370MW Norther offshore wind farm at its yard in Vlissingen, the Netherlands.

The UK-based shipbuilding design, engineering, and management company said in a press release that the last sections of spare array and export cables were transpooled from the Van Oord CLV Nexus, and the DOC-Swan Hunter 4750Te onshore basket carousel, to long term modular storage baskets.

The completion of this final spooling operation marks the end of a year long contract for Van Oord, which included export cable load-in from HLV Da Ji, interim storage and protection, export cable load-out to CLV Nexus, spare cable transpooling and handling operations, and finally transportation of the loaded baskets to the long term storage site in Belgium.

 “The successful completion of this project for Van Oord further exhibits our Storage and Spooling Yard as an attractive and strategic choice for installation contractors in the offshore wind industry," stated Director, Gerard Kroese.

He added: "With a busy yard schedule ahead for Q2 2019, the combination of our dedicated cable handling equipment and strategically placed ‘direct to sea’ yard, proves the attraction of our full service solution to the offshore wind industry supply chain”
