Mon, 03 October 2016
Siem Offshore Contractors GmbH (SOC) has selected UK-based Tekmar Energy to supply cable protection systems for the inner array grid cable system at the Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm (OWF).
The company has previously announced that it had awarded the contract for the turnkey supply and installation package of the inner array grid cable system for the 588 MW Beatrice OWF.
In addition to the submarine cable installation works, SOC will also provide associated materials and services including the supply of the submarine composite cables, cable protection systems and related accessories as well as post-installation termination, trenching and testing services.
The Beatrice OWF is located off the Caithness coast line in the Outer Moray Firth on the north-western point of the Smith Bank and features 84x 7MW wind turbines.
These turbines will be inter-connected by 91 x 33kV medium voltage alternating current submarine composite cables totalling up to 164km in length.
The offshore works for the package are set to begin in 2017, with project completion scheduled before the end of Q3 2018.
