Nexans Aurora arrives in Norway
Cable laying vessel (CLV) Nexans Aurora has arrived at Ulstein Verft in Norway, where outfitting work will be carried out.
Nexans Aurora began its trip to Norway from the CRIST shipyard in Poland a few days ago.
The hull will now be towed into the dock hall at Ulstein Verft before activities such as outfitting, electrical work, insulation and piping commence.
Ulstein Verft will also install the main components, including the main generator set, the power package, deck machinery, winches and topside equipment.
Designed by Skipsteknisk, the ST-297 CLV has a 31m long beam and can accommodate up to 90 persons. It also has a 10,000t capacity split turntable and a deadweight of 17,000t.
Once delivered in 2021, Nexans Aurora will be able to perform power cable laying, including bundle laying, jointing and repair, and cable system protection and trenching.
