Marine and Towage Services (MTS), a UK-based marine services provider, has supported the recently completed works at Wave Hub site by providing its MTS Xplorer vessel for survey operations.

As part of a sub-contract with the principal contractor James Fisher Marine Services (JFMS), MTS was employed by Cornwall-based Insight Marine Projects to provide a survey vessel MTS Explorer to undertake a high resolution as-built multibeam survey of the new cables.

Cabling works on the project, conducted by JFMS, have been completed last month with a further 6 km of cabling, connectors, cable abrasion protection and rock bag stabilisation installed.

Steve Bendell, Commercial Manager at MTS, said: “The experience garnered in cable installation and deployment in the wider offshore wind market is still highly relevant as we install pioneering new devices off our coastlines. In deploying MTS Xplorer to the project from our Falmouth operation, we were able to provide a vessel and crew with many hours of surveying experience.”

Wave Hub test site, located off Cornwall, provides shared offshore infrastructure for the demonstration and proving of offshore renewable energy technologies.

MTS provides a wide range of marine services from towage, tugs and civil engineering support to pilotage and shipping agency and has worked in markets including dredging and offshore renewables.
