RentOcean, a subsidiary of Oceanteam Shipping ASA, says it has delivered a certified 4000t modular carousel system for the transportation of 2 x 50km of power cables from the LS cable plant in Donghae, South Korea to the project port of Doha, Qatar and for laying the cables.
RentOcean will also supply tensioning equipment and a lay train. The project is due to take place in 2014 and 2015. The carousel will be transported to Ulsan mid-January 2014 for build up at LS Cable's key side.
The manufacturers explain that the new patented carousel series are designed for flexibility and quick mobilisation on standard psv/csv with limited deck load. The carousels have, fully loaded, a maximum deck load of 8t per sq.m which can avoid under deck reinforcement. The modular systems are delivered to the mobilization site in 40ft containers. All system components are 'plug and play' and interchangeable.
RentOcean owns and operates from its deep water base in Velsen, in The Netherlands, a large pool of carousels, tensioners and burial equipment which it supplies and rents to a broad client base around the world, to support offshore cable, pipeline and umbilical installations, transport and storage projects.
