Oceanteam to Store Dutch Offshore Transmission Cables
Oceanteam Solutions has been awarded a long-term contract to supply an Offshore Transmission Owner (OFTO) with port facilities, loadouts and storage of cables at Oceanteam’s own cable storage facility in Velsen Noord, The Netherlands.
The transpooling of a cable will be performed by the company’s cable handling crew at the end of this month. The cable will be transferred to a 120T liftable cable basket, designed and engineered by Oceanteam Solutions, for storage for up to 20 years.
Oceanteam’s cable storage facility is situated immediately behind the North Sea locks of IJmuiden, in the area of the port of Amsterdam.
“We are very pleased with this contract and to have the opportunity to welcome another client to our storage facility. With our support on this long-term project it again shows the demand of a cable storage hub, with direct access to the North Sea, and the fully integrated range of services Oceanteam Solutions offers,” said Lex van Doorn, Managing Director of Oceanteam Solutions.
