Nexans’ newest cable-layer begins sea trials

Nexans Aurora

A new cable-laying vessel built for Nexans has begun undergoing sea trials in Norway.

The Skipsteknisk-designed Nexans Aurora is scheduled for delivery to its new owners one week following completion of the trials. Prior to the hand-over, additional work such as outfitting and tests of the hydraulic equipment will be conducted.

The hull of the DP3-capable vessel was built in Crist, Poland, and later transported to Norway for completion.

In addition to performing cable-laying, Nexans Aurora will also be used for bundle laying, cable jointing, repair, cable system protection, and trenching.
