Nexans Aurora Full Deck Spread Lay EquipmentDue for Completion 2021

Nexans Aurora CLV is a state-of-the-art deepwater vessel intended for laying, recovery and repair of subsea HVDC and HVAC cable systems and with 2 firing lines adding versatility to the Vessel’s 10,000t payload. The carousel is an innovative concentric design which allows either 2 cables to be processed in parallel, or a single long length cable weighing 10,000t net. This minimises offshore jointing requirements which is a significant advantage technically and commercially. This will be the largest offshore carousel globally, when launched.
