The CEMAC linear cable engines (LCEs) represent MacArtney’s leading-edge offshore cable handling equipment. These LCEs belong to the product line, which incorporates both cable carousels, track tensioners and bow cable engines.

Being electrically driven, the CEMAC offshore LCEs are accurate and energy-efficient systems that safely control the installation and recovery of offshore power and telecom cables.

The engines feature durability, high performance and easy integration. Available in standard and custom configura­tions, they are easily combined with cable carousels, track tensioners, power quadrants, spooling arms, etc.

The CEMAC design represents compact and modular sys­tems that are easily mobilised and cost-effective in terms of transport. All main components are standardised, which facilitates adaptation and upgrading to the required performance and capacity.

The CEMAC LCEs are fully synchronisable with all CEMAC offshore cable handling equipment. The LCEs also comply with third-party equipment, enabling integration into existing and rental cable equipment lay-lines.

The CEMAC LCEs are available with a remote diagnostics tool, which enables MacArtney technicians to monitor and supervise remotely in real-time. By eliminating unnecessary offshore engineering support, this unique feature generates substantial cost savings forowners and operators.

Versatility in all transpooling applications

CEMAC Linear Cable Engines (LCEs) offer versatile func­tionality with optional bow arms and slings for crane-assist­ed cable loading and unloading. This adaptability allows for taking on both vertical and horisontal cable transpooling operations. Additionally, MacArtney BCEs and LCEs can be fully synchronised with carousels and other third-party equipment, facilitating seamless integration into existing and rental cable equipment lay-lines. Available in 1-, 2-, and 3-wheel pair configurations, CEMAC linear cable engines are also suitable for master-slave operations, providing enhanced flexibility and efficiency.
