Ecosse Subsea targets carousel marketEcosse Subsea Systems (ESS) ( has designed, built and delivered a 700Te carousel for a major international infrastructure group.

Designed with the capacity to be upgraded to 1700Te, this will be used for the storage of cables required for UK offshore wind-farm projects.

The design and project management phases were conducted at ESS headquarters in Banchory (near Aberdeen), with partial manufacture undertaken at ESS subsidiary MASfab in County Durham.

Kevin Harper, ESS project manager, said: “The delivery of this carousel demonstrates Ecosse Subsea’s capability in designing, manufacturing and installing bespoke infrastructure for use in the energy industries.

Using our own in-house design capabilities and fabrication facility gives us greater control and flexibility to ensure that projects are delivered seamlessly and on schedule.”

This is the second onshore storage carousel that ESS has delivered; the first was an 800Te off-shore rated unit for a major renewables client.

Mr Harper added: “There is a growing market for storage carousels for use in the renewables sector, and we will leverage our experience to meet this market requirement, while exploring other opportunities in traditional sub-sea oil and gas projects.

“Most discerning companies tend to prefer key infrastructure built by suppliers with a proven track record of delivering similar equipment.”

ESS is currently best known for the design, build and use of its world-leading SCAR equipment, which is used for sea-bed conditioning and boulder clearing, trenching and back-fill. ESS also offers specialist engineering and project management services.
