Huisman Nederland was commissioned to develop a modern and efficient fly-jib for the Jumbo Javelin. due to the high lifting capacity this jib had to have, there was only one option; using the world’s strongest cable. Under the supervision of Lloyd’s Register, FibreMax made these cables from Twaron (aramid) with a breaking strength of no less than 7,000kN each!
About the Jumbo Javelin
Offering versatility, high transit speed, stability and the ability to work in deep-water and harsh
offshore environments, the Jumbo Javelin provides cost effective transport and installation solutions.
An exceptionally large, flush working deck and a multi-level cargo hold enables the Jumbo Javelin
to add modular components to suit specific project requirements and to integrate all offshore
activities from “Quayside-to-Seabed”. This unique method saves multiple resources, critical time,
complex logistics and offshore interfaces.
