Maats Tech secures contract for Van Oord's new CLV
MAATS Tech has announced
that it is supporting VARD and Van Oord in the development of a new custom
built green Cable Lay Vessel (CLV) for the offshore renewables market.
At 130m long and with a 28 meter beam, the vessel has capacity to accommodate
the MAATS designed cable lay equipment which has been developed in close
consultation with both VARD and Van Oord.
The design includes a 5000Te below deck carousel and 4000Te on deck carousel
complete with loading arms, cable engines and an accompanying 20Te Quadrant
System all designed to DNV certification standards. The vessel will mainly
be deployed on inter-array grid and export cables of offshore wind projects.
MAATS Tech Managing Director, Lisa Edwards, commented: "To have
worked with both Van Oord and Vard during the conception phase of this
project has allowed MAATS Tech to understand and develop ideas alongside
the design of the equipment to provide this experienced operator with a
vessel for huge potential in future work”
This hybrid vessel has been designed with sustainable technologies in order
to reduce the carbon foot print during operations and port standby and
will be fully operational in 2023.
