Offshore supply vessels usually moor at multi-functional quays where other vessels berth as well. At inner city ports for example cruise ships or at offshore bases other offshore ships such as pipelaying vessels.
Offshore supply vessels usually moor at multi-functional quays where other types of vessel also berth. The weather conditions also play a decisive role. To protect the crew on board against wind and weather, the bow of the vessel is often turned into wind.
This changes the mooring positions, which means that the extension length of the cable feed system can be 30 m and more. The vessel's crane is then used to handle the cables. Although time-consuming, this increases flexibility.
igus® e-spool® gives greater flexibility and better cable management, even under extreme weather conditions.
At inner city ports the mooring position can be determined exactly. Especially where terminals are accessible to the public, optical and safety-related aspects play an important role.
In this case it is an advantage when the cable management system has a small footprint and that cables and connectors do not lie on the quay where they are accessible.
If the connectors are deployed at a safe height directly onto the ship, work is eased for the crew and the deployment length can be reduced.
