Power Cable Storage

A purpose built facility to protect the most valuable of assets

Following the installation of a power cable carousel in 2016, CWind now has the ability to store and manage power cable for owners and operators requiring a strategically placed location to home their cable assets.

The facility is manned by qualified personnel and experienced cable engineers who handle the precious cable with care and are on hand to monitor on-going cable conditions and the wider environment, ensuring assets are well maintained for future use.

The facility also completes cable testing as customers require, offering assurance to owners ahead of retrieving the cable from storage for use on installation and maintenance operations.

 

 

The purpose-built secured storage facility offers the ideal environment for the long-term protection of these valuable assets, in particular from Ultra Violet (UV) degradation and large temperature fluctuations, both key criteria for helping to ensure future trouble-free deployment.

The facility has been part of the Global Marine Group and providing fibre optic cable storage for 18 years, and in addition to the new power cable carousels, contains 33 telecoms cable tanks, with a total capacity of 8,750 m3. Using our vast knowledge and expertise, the site currently stores 2,000km of telecoms cable for a multitude of customers, along with over 3,500 universal joint kits and associated equipment including repeaters, equalisers and branching units.

The site was built to specification and is geared to mobilise with ease between power and fibre optic cabling. The 2,000 tonne cable carousel is equipped with a 10 tonne tensioner and works alongside a 15 tonne quayside tensioner to ensure effective cable handling from vessel to shore, and back.

Portland Port is able to welcome a wide variety of vessels in its deep waters and large dock estate. Berthing right alongside the covered cable storage facility ensures cable handling can be kept to a minimum, reducing any risk of damage through movement and extending the lifespan of the assets.

OUR KEY CAPABILITIES:

  • Long term cable storage options
  • Strategically placed, accessible location on the South coast of the UK
  • Years of experience in cable storage
  • Purpose-built facility
  • Qualified and experienced cable engineers handling cable
  • 2,000 tonne cable carousel with 10 tonne tensioner
  • Protection from UV degradation and temperature fluctuations
