P&O Maritime Services has announced the arrival of its Multipurpose DP2 Cable Installation vessel, the CS European Supporter, to Tyneside in the UK.  Following an extensive conversion, the European Supporter has been equipped to install inter-array power cables between wind turbines in the rapidly expanding UK European Offshore Renewables market.  Furthermore, the vessel has retained its capability to install fiber optic cable for the Telecommunications sector and was built to provide the Oil & Gas industry with a range of Light Intervention, WROV, Construction and Decommission Support Services. 
The 106m vessel has the capacity to accommodate 5,000 tons of power cable in two static tanks, using a newly installed power cable loading arm.  A 60t SWL active heave compensation crane has been installed and the vessel is expected to accommodate a work class ROV in the hanger or the aft deck.  A 35 ton A-frame is available and trenchers & ploughs can be accommodated on the aft deck for cable burial.  All cable machinery is housed inside a hanger deck. The ship also provides living accommodation and recreational facilities for up to 60 personnel.
P&O Maritime Services also offers complete “turn-key” cable installation, burial, maintenance and inspection services to the European Offshore Renewables Sector through its partnership with Offshore Marine Management (OMM).
