The NEXUS project is being carried out by a consortium (co-led by ARTTIC and Rolls-Royce Marine) made up of 6 recognised and experienced key players from 4 different EU member states. The consortium consists of ARTTIC, Rolls-Royce Marine AS, University of Strathclyde, GONDAN Shipbuilders, DNV GL AS, Global Marine Group and SINTEF Ocean.


GMG consists of three business units: CWind delivering power cable and asset management services topside and subsea, to the offshore renewables and utilities market; Global Marine providing fibre optic cable solutions to the telecommunications and oil & gas markets; and Global Offshore delivering trenching and cable lay services to the oil & gas industry.

Role in the project

GMG is specifically involved in NEXUS by providing necessary input for the requirement definition and ship design process. By taking on the role of ship owner and O&M provider, the business case will be developed from the combined perspective of a ship owner and O&M service provider. This will enable GMG to promote the vessel for prospective O&M services through the technology push strategy.
