CABLE STORAGE

CAOMM HAS DEVELOPED OPTIONS FOR SEVERAL DEDICATED SECURE CABLE STORAGE FACILITIES IN THE UK AND GERMANY WHERE SUBSEA CABLE CAN BE KEPT IN OPTIMUM CONDITIONS TO SERVE THE RENEWABLE ENERGY, MARINE TELECOMS AND OIL & GAS INDUSTRIES.

THIS SERVICE ENABLES CLIENTS TO OPTIMALLY STORE INFIELD AND EXPORT CABLES, MAINTAINING AND VERIFYING THEIR CONDITION AND IMPROVING THEIR LIFESPAN.

Our approach to O&M challenges the norms of existing O&M solutions and scope whether this is in; cable storage, where we offer a market leading long term carousel based solution; or vessel design, where we understand the through life or true cost of a vessel. It is our passionate view that subsea elements, considered by many to be benign exist in incredibly harsh environments and therefore can present a considerable risk to a project and require an IMR based solution.

As part of the service we can offer storage on reels or on carousels which themselves can be dedicated or shared depending on client requirements. In addition to cables we can store accessories and other key components in conditions which overcome the risk of theft or damage. We therefore provide a complete service that takes full responsibility for cable integrity and mitigates risk for owners whilst providing the highest level of quality assurance in the event of remedial actions being required. These actions can then be undertaken in a timely and cost effective manner. Additionally, we support our clients with a programme of annual cable integrity tests to ensure cable operability prior to installation.

The strategic locations of our cable storage facilities on the East and West coast of the UK and on the West coast of Germany are designed specifically to overcome the usual logistical difficulties in cable repair and maintenance and are supported by a dedicated quayside, cable loading and cable unloading systems. The technology deployed within the facilities and in particular the use of carousel storage ensures cables are protected from issues such as bend memory and can be mobilised irrespective of external environmental conditions, in particular temperature.

This cable storage service is available separately or in combination with our structured approach to sub-sea operations and maintenance - including the industry’s first full subsea inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR) service – these storage facilities are expected to significantly reduce the time and cost of subsea cable repairs.

CAOMM has a choice of storage facilities at:

Nordenham, Northern Germany, arranged in a joint venture with a European logistics specialist

Gravesend, South East UK

A third site is under consideration, on the UK West coast, to serve the Irish Sea and Atlantic markets
