VBMS Introduces Resin-Free Hang-Off
VBMS has introduced a new solution for fixing and sealing subsea cables in offshore structures with its resin-free hang-off.
The resin-free hang-off is a joint development of VBMS and Kintech Energy.
Arno van Poppel, managing director of VBMS said, “As a total solution provider in the renewables sector, we continuously think of ways to improve safety and efficiency and to reduce the operational risk for our clients. For this latest innovation we have cooperated with our partner Kintech Energy, a start-up enterprise from the UK. We believe it is important to invest in new market entrants and stimulate innovation within the supply chain.”
Mark Kinder, director of Kintech Energy said, “This is a very exciting time for Kintech to be working with a market leader in subsea cable installation. It is important for the industry that larger companies recognize and support the innovation available within new and existing supply chain members.”
Energy company Vattenfall has shown interest and is currently exploring the options for using the resin-free hang-off for the Horns Rev 3 offshore wind farm next year, VBMS said.
“Vattenfall is a true supporter of innovations that increase overall environment protection, safety and reduce risk. We are convinced that together with the supply chain we can set a higher standard in our industry,” added Jens Hansen Horns Rev 3 project director from Vattenfall.
