Blue Offshore and Caley commence design of innovative basket carousel (Netherlands)

Blue Offshore and Caley Ocean Systems have announced the commencement of the design of an innovative cable installation system for delivery by Spring 2011.

The system features an unique flexible modular basket carousel, which enables the carousel to have variable carrying capacities to suit the project requirements.

The flexibility and modularity of the system will reduce costs and risks to customers through shorter (de)mobilisation periods, flexible cable loading schedules and allows for increased choice in cable installation methodologies.

“This is an important step forward for our new venture and we believe that this innovative solution will enable us to serve our customers with greater choice and flexibility. We are also keen to continue our relationship with Caley Ocean Systems, whom we have successfully worked with before”, says Gerard Kroese, Director of Blue Offshore.

Caley Sales Director Gregor McPherson comments: “We are delighted to be given this opportunity to further develop our cable handling technology with this exciting new company. We are all looking forward to working with the Blue Offshore team in the months ahead.”
