Maats has been commissioned to design and build carousel systems for new-buildings at two different Norwegian shipyards.
The first is a 2,000 tonne unit with centrally mounted spooling arm for delivery in the first quarter of 2014. The second is a 4500 tonne carousel designed primarily for cable applications, with centrally mounted spooling arm and 15 tonne load out tensioner, for delivery in the second quarter of 2014. Both carousels are to be installed below deck. Maats has also been commissioned to design and build the deck spread comprising the product pathways and over-boarding chute.
Maats is also providing finite element analysis services to the shipyards to assist in the design of the vessel double bottoms in the vicinity of the carousels.
