WW Ocean RoRo Transport for Taihan Subsea Cables

Construction and installation work in the offshore wind sector continues throughout the virus lockdown. To meet the demand for cables to connect the wind farms offshore to the onshore grid South Korean cable company Taihan is shipping subsea export cables via WW Ocean’s RoRo routes. Without a regular supply of cables many projects would simply grind to a halt.

Taihan is using WW Ocean’s RoRo service for regular shipments of subsea cables from the port of Masan in Korea to North America.

“Keeping on track with our project schedules in the US is crucial,” explains S. H. Lee, project manager at Taihan. “The US is one of our key markets and in comparison to conventional carriers, WW Ocean’s competitive Asia to North America schedule means we benefit from timely and damage-free delivery of our products.” The subsea cable drums are carefully placed and secured on roll trailers, where they remain for the entire voyage.
