DeepOcean Secures Hornsea Project One Cable Work

DeepOcean, based in Darlington, has won a contract to transport and install cables for DONG Energy’s Hornsea Project One wind farm.

Located 120 km off the Yorkshire Coast, Hornsea Project One will have a capacity of over one gigawatt (GW), and will be capable of supplying electricity to over one million homes.

Duncan Clark, Hornsea Project One director, said: “Throughout this project we’ve worked hard to ensure as much value as possible is realized by UK businesses. Today’s announcement further demonstrates both the UK’s ability to supply the offshore wind industry, and DONG Energy’s continuing commitment to investing in the UK.”

The contract was signed in Grimsby at a supply chain event held by DONG Energy to connect with potential new local suppliers., DeepOcean noted.

DeepOcean’s commercial director for cables & trenching, Pierre Boyde, said: “After our awards on the Race Bank & Walney Extension projects we are delighted to be further developing our relationship with DONG Energy. We have invested heavily in class leading installation and trenching technology with a strong focus on both safety and productivity. This award will safeguard 150 jobs in Darlington and the surrounding area as well as enabling us to offer significant opportunities to the UK supply chain.”

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
