Siem Offshore Contractors GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of Siem Offshore Inc., announced that SOC has been awarded the contract for the turnkey supply and installation package of the inner array grid cable system for the Nordsee One Offshore Wind Farm, a project developed by RWE Innogy GmbH.

The contract award highlights the continued expansion into the Offshore Renewable Energy Market for the Siem Offshore group.

The OWF will be situated within the German Bight sector of the North Sea, approx. 40 km north of the island of Juist. The OWF will consist of 54 wind turbine generators, each with a capacity of 6.15 MW and shall be inter-connected by an inner array grid of 33 kV medium voltage (MVAC) submarine composite cables with a total length of up to 72 km.

SOC will be utilising resources within the Siem Offshore group, whereby the combined capabilities of Siem Offshore’s marine operations and the engineering and installation experience of SOC will form a natural and strong resource base to the benefit of the project.

In addition to the submarine cable installation works, SOC will also provide associated materials and services including of the submarine composite cables and related accessories as well as post-installation termination, trenching and testing services.

The engineering works of the project will commence immediately. The marine installation works are currently scheduled to be undertaken in 2016, but are subject to a final investment decision to be taken before the end of first quarter 2015.
