Nexans orders cable lay vessel at Ulstein

France’s Nexans Subsea Operations has signed a shipbuilding contract with Ulstein Verft for the construction of a DP3 cable lay vessel.

The ST-297 CLV design vessel has been developed for operations in rough weather and will be outfitted for power cable laying, cable jointing and repair and cable system protection and trenching.

“We are very pleased that Nexans, a solid and important player, chooses Ulstein to construct their new flag ship. We have a strong organisation with long experience in delivering advanced vessels. The contract was won in tough, international competition. We look forward to a constructive and fruitful cooperation with Nexans in the years to come,” commented Gunvor Ulstein, CEO of Ulstein Group.
