CWind Demonstrates Cable-Handling Capabilities
- Grid Connection
CWind has completed a week of cable team demonstrations at its training facility in Barrow-in-Furness.
CWind utilised the Barrow-in-Furness training tower of NWFTC, its training centre, to demonstrate the pull-in in a realistic scenario. The tower, which is also used for pre-project scenario testing, is the UK’s only onshore training tower with a real transition piece. Attendees were given the opportunity to climb the tower and observe the tower team during the pull-in of the cable.
The demonstration also allowed a view into what would be under water underneath the confined space and monitor the progress of the cable through the aperture.
Lee Andrews, Operations Director at CWind said: “Interest among clients has been really high for these demonstrations, we had to put on more sessions than we had anticipated.”
