For this new long-term storage project, Oceanteam delivers two demountable carousels of which one will be upgraded and customised from 4000t to 5300t, according to the client's cable specifications. Spooling operations will start later this month and will be performed by our experienced cable handling crew.
Our cable storage facility is situated immediately behind the North Sea locks of IJmuiden, in the direct proximity of Amsterdam. The harbour is only 1.5 NM inward from sea and berths are safe and free of tidal movement. Another major benefit of the area is the easy accessibility for all modalities, such as good shipping possibilities to the inlands of Europe. Cable storage units (static tanks, turntables, cable baskets, reels) can be placed at every desired position and in every size.
"We are very pleased with this contract and we are happy to have the opportunity to welcome one of the biggest cable manufacturers to our storage facility. It shows that our unique one-stop shop, that combines engineering know-how, professional cable handling crews and special purpose equipment, fulfils our clients' high expectations," says Lex van Doorn Managing Director of Oceanteam Solutions.
