In the coming year and a half, our client Prysmian Powerlink Ltd will be doing a great deal of traveling to jet cables for new wind turbines.
The “MV Ulisse” will sail from England (Newcastle) towards Germany. When this project is completed, the ship will head for the East Coast of the United States.
VAN HECK’S EQUIPMENT AND CONTRIBUTION
The requested red equipment, two DPPG750 pumps with split cases SC300-500 and frequency converters with controls, will be built on board the MV Ulisse.
This pump spread will provide the on-board digging tool with sufficient high pressure to bury the cables in the seabed.
Before the material could be transported, the necessary preparations were made in Noordwolde. Even though this project is a copy of previous projects, the material had to comply to the applicable laws and regulations of the various territorial waters. A suitable pump set-up was chosen in close consultation with Prysmian. Before departure, various surveys were carried out to ensure the quality of the equipment leaving our premises.
The client will build the pump set-up, after which the commissioning will be supported by Van Heck’s supervisor. When this is completed, a handover and instruction will take place so that the pumps can be worked safely and professionally all over the world.
The total project is expected to be completed in August 2023.
