RentOcean Wins Carousel Supply Contract with Wind BV

first_imgzoom RentOcean, a 100 percent owned subsidiary of Oceanteam Shipping ASA, has been awarded a contract by WIND BV to supply a certified 1500t modular carousel system and a 10t tensioner for a 90-day project.IllustrationThe carousel and additional equipment will be used to transport cables for the Safaniya oil field for McDermott. The transport will take place in summer 2014. RentOcean is currently upgrading its already existing 1250t modular carousel to support 1500t of cables.The new patented carousel series is designed for flexibility and quick mobilisation on standard PSV/CSV with limited deck load. Fully loaded, the carousels have a maximum deck load of 8t m2, eliminating the need for under-deck reinforcement. The modular systems are delivered to the mobilisation site in 40ft containers. All system components are ‘plug and play’ and interchangeable.As a result of this new philosophy, the equipment is sea- and road transportable, and can be mobilized in a cost effective manner to all ports globally. “We are excited that, with this contract award, we can further serve the Oil&Gas market with our equipment. It proves the multifunctional and competitive design of our modular carousels,” says Managing Director of RentOcean, Lex van Doorn.RentOcean, May 5, 2014last_img read more
