Vessel Maersk Connector on the river at Blyth, Northumberland
The vessel, Maersk Connector, was completed in February 2016 and is now underway with a seven-year charter with DeepOcean. Featuring a carousel capable of carrying 7,000 tonnes of power cables, Maersk Connector is available for the offshore interconnector and export cable markets as well as oil and gas projects.
Initially, she will be used to install subsea power cables connecting the North Sea countries with the interconnector grid. Her first major lay project was from Belgium to the UK in 2018.
