Oceanteam informs that its subsidiary RentOcean has been awarded a contract by WIND BV to supply a certified 1500t modular carousel system and a 10t tensioner for a 90-day project in the Safaniya oil field.

RentOcean explain that the carousel and additional equipment will be used to transport cables for the Safaniya oil field for McDermott. The transport will take place in summer 2014. RentOcean is currently upgrading its already existing 1250t modular carousel to support 1500t of cables.  

The new patented carousel series is designed for flexibility and quick mobilisation on standard PSV/CSV with limited deck load. Fully loaded, the carousels have a maximum deck load of 8t m2, eliminating the need for under-deck reinforcement. The modular systems are delivered to the mobilisation site in 40ft containers. All system components are 'plug and play' and interchangeable.

As a result of this new philosophy, the equipment is sea- and road transportable, and can be mobilized in a cost effective manner to all ports globally.
 
"We are excited that, with this contract award, we can further serve the Oil&Gas market with our equipment. It proves the multifunctional and competitive design of our modular carousels. "Above all, RentOcean looks forward to cooperating with WIND BV and McDermott on this project", says Managing Director of RentOcean, Lex van Doorn''.

About the Company
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.
