A basket is a storage medium for storing flexibles and umbilicals. End-connectors can be secured to lashing points on the outer wall and hub. The flexible pipe is spooled and unspooled without any back tension. The basket design is modular and consists of several parts that form the floor, outer wall, inner hub and drive system.
All parts are restricted in size which simplifies transport and enables installation through a deck hatch with a sufficient size. This means that, when necessary, the basket can be installed in a later stage of the vessel building process.
