JF Rumic to the rescue

Cable installation on the Beatrice wind farm on the Moray Firth in Scotland was put on hold briefly when cabling company Nexans Norway found itself in need of additional expert personnel.

But a call to James Fisher Rumic resulted in a superfast resolution – the company was able to get a team of highly skilled offshore operators on site in a remote part of Northern Scotland within five days to catch a crucial weather window.

Rumic’s business development manager, Andy Nattrass explains:

‘We pride ourselves on our ability to respond rapidly, and in this case, the client had a very short weather window and an expensive cabling vessel all ready and waiting, so we had to move fast to get our team to the site as quickly as possible.’

Rumic provided crew for handling special floats on board cable laying vessel C/S Nexans Skagerrak as well as an onshore support team tasked with the job of bringing a cable inland for connection to the onshore substation.

Darren Harper, who works for Nexans’ agent, Denholm Wilhelmsen Ltd explains:

‘James Fisher provided six personnel to assist with the inflating and deflating of the buoys used to support the cable in its 1km journey from the vessel to shore. They also helped with the manual handling of floats on deck.

‘Nexans was very pleased with the work which extended from early morning to late in the evening and gives its best recommendation.’

The Rumic team will be returning to Scottish Waters in the New Year to continue the work.
