Ecosse unveils 950Te carousel

In: Windfarms
Ecosse IP Ltd (EIP), based in Banchory Aberdeenshire, has invested in a new 950Te carousel which is now ready for use at Sunderland Port. MASfab will be fabricating modifications to the carousel to upgrade its current 950Te capacity.

The carousel will be used for the storage of cables required for UK offshore wind farm projects and works alongside both EIP’s FLOWT (Floating Offshore Wind Tension Foundation System) and Ambient Lifter technology. EIP stated it will also give the company the ability to spool large volumes of pipe for the company’s patented Ambient lifting devices.

Mike Wilson, EIP Chief Technology Officer and Chairman said: “I am pleased that EIP has invested in its first carousel. As the latest addition to its growing fleet, the carousel broadens the breadth of services that we can offer. There are a lot of spare cable storage requirements within the sustainable energy market that EIP can fulfil.”

Wilson continues: “Our ambition is for this Carousel to form the core of a cable storage service for multiple cables in multiple ports.”

Established in July 2018, EIP has invested in developing a range of technologies that includes its patented Ambient Lifter, FLOWT and MOWT. Ambient Linear is designed for installation and decommissioning of pipelines, bundles and for conductor removal. FLOWT is a foundation and installation solution for floating offshore wind and marine renewables.

The patented MOWT technology was developed to provide a cost-effective method of generating energy from slow-moving 1m/s water. MOWT is designed for use in rivers, estuaries and subsea current & tidal environments, offering an energy solution with minimal environmental impact.
