The Lewek Connector (formerly known as the AMC Connector) is an advanced subsea installation and construction vessel capable of operating in waters up to 3000 meters. Lewek Connector sets a new standard in the subsea cable laying market. The vessel has a unique pay load capacity of 9000 tones of products, as it is equipped with two turntables for high voltage power cables or subsea umbilical´s. This makes Lewek Connector the world´s largest cable installation vessel. With this record breaking product payload capacity, Lewek Connector will be able to take on highly complex and sizeable projects. This state of the art cable laying vessel is perfectly designed for power connections to oil & gas platforms or wind parks as well as to other renewable power transfers. ABB has signed a charter...

Aerial views over the fantastic beach at Pensarn and the cable layer ship/boat currently moored up there for whatever reason cable layers need messing about with. Pensarn is a suburb of Abergele in Conwy County Borough, Wales. It has a population of around 2,000. The name Pensarn means 'end of the causeway' in English. The crossing of Morfa Rhuddlan was facilitated by a causeway near the sea, located at this point. This causeway was later flanked by the holiday developments along the coast. Pensarn is served by Abergele and Pensarn railway station, the A55 and National Cycle Route 5 Music courtesy of www.freestockmusic.com Gear used is a DJi F450 quadcopter, Naza Controller, RC Logger FPV system, DX7 controller.
