Global Offshore, part of the Global Marine Group, has installed a 2,000-tonne capacity power cable carousel at Port of Blyth’s Battleship Wharf terminal. The cable carousel is provided by Swan Hunter.
The port, where cable-lay vessels Normand Clipper and Global Symphony are frequently mobilised, has become an operational hub for the company in recent years. The new carousel, which is equipped with a 10-tonne tensioner to ensure effective cable handling from vessel to shore, and back, also offers short-term options for clients requiring cable storage on the northeast coast of England. The new cable carousel is in addition to Global Marine Group’s cable storage facility in Portland, Dorset.
