DeepOcean Blyth base
DeepOcean has opened a new Offshore Services Base at Blyth in the North East of England, which will be of strategic importance to DeepOcean’s increasing presence in Global cable lay and trenching markets.
Offshore Services Base Blyth is a state-of the art facility, purpose built to support the planning, preparation, mobilisation and maintenance of DeepOcean’s sophisticated subsea trenching assets and vessel fleet. At 1,000 square metres, the facility includes covered storage space and six internal work bays, with access to 10te and 15te capacity overhead cranes.
The facility features two heavy lift quays with deep-water berths to 8.5m, year-round access for large vessels and crane support to 250Te. Alongside the quays are 1,800 square metres of secure external storage, external asset wash down area and asset calibration pit.
Supporting around-the-clock activities and with immediate and easy marine access, Offshore Service Base Blyth will improve DeepOcean’s ability for rapid deployment of high sea state, repair solutions to the North Sea.
As well as creating a number of new jobs in Blyth, the Offshore Base will house DeepOcean’s Asset Management Team, which has relocated from Head Office in Darlington, County Durham.
Pierre Boyde, Managing Director Cable Installation & Trenching, DeepOcean, said: “The UK offshore wind supply chain has extensive expertise and experience and in the North East we are ideally located to serve the major current and future project developments taking place in British waters. Wind farm developers can maximise the availability of the integrated, multi-skilled supply chain, which can come together to deliver projects through facilities such as our new offshore base.”
