Worlds Biggest Vessel Carousel Underway
5 July 2018
MAATS is delighted to confirm it has been awarded the supply of a ground breaking deck spread by Nexans. The scope will be installed on a state of the art cable lay vessel 'Nexans Aurora' scheduled for launch by 2021. The main item is a 10,000te cable carousel, which will be a concentric ‘carousel in a carousel’ design and therefore able to process 2 cables simultaneously, or alternatively it can store a single length weighing 10,000te. Other equipment includes a capstan hold back, two deck tensioners, laywheels and integrated control system. The vessel has 2 firing lines and is primarily intended to lay interconnectors and export cables for Nexans customers.
