Ulstein to Build Advanced, DP3 Cable Layer for Nexen

July 6, 2018 by Mike Schuler

The ST-297 CLV (cable laying vessel) is designed by Skipsteknisk, Ålesund

Norwegian shipbuilder Ulstein has secured a contract from French cable company Nexans to construct a large, DP3 cable laying vessel to support the growing demand for clean energy.


The advanced cable layer, designed by Norwegian ship designer Skipsteknisk, will be outfitted for power cable laying, including bundle laying, cable jointing and repair and cable system protection and drenching. DP3 will offer high maneuverability and station keeping capabilities even in rough weather.

Nexans says the newbuild is part of a company initiative to reinforce its manufacturing and installation capacities to meet the growing demand for HV cabling systems, particularly as it relates to interconnectors and offshore wind projects worldwide.
 
The vessel will feature a turntable with a large cable capacity of 10,000 tonnes, and the fiber optic basket holds 450 tonnes. The vessel is 31 m wide, 149.9 m long, with a deadweight of 17,000 tonnes, and she can accommodate 90 people.

“We are very pleased that Nexans, a solid and important player, chooses Ulstein to construct their new flagship,” said Ulstein Group CEO Gunvor Ulstein. “We have a strong organization with long experience in delivering advanced vessels. The contract was won in tough, international competition. We look forward to a constructive and fruitful cooperation with Nexans in the years to come.”

The vessel will be constructed at the Ulstein Verft shipyard in Norway with delivery expected by Q3 2020.

“We are experienced in constructing large and complex vessels and we look forward to commencing the work on the cable laying vessel for Nexans”, says Kristian Sætre, managing director at Ulstein Verft.

“The construction of this new cable-laying vessel is a fundamental milestone in our commitment to cleaner energy,“ said Arnaud Poupart-Lafarge, Nexans CEO. “For many decades, Nexans has been acting for energy transition and sustainable development. In this next exciting chapter of our capacity to meet customer expectations, the cutting-edge technology of the new ship will enable Nexans to support countries in their development of the unlimited potential of renewable power generation.”
