VBMS Nets Inter-Array Cable Deal for EnBW Hohe See OWF

VBMS, a subsidiary of Boskalis, has been awarded an inter-array cabling contract by EnBW Hohe See GmbH for the 500 MW EnBW Hohe See offshore wind farm.

The contract has a value of approximately EUR 80 million (USD 85 million), and includes the supply, installation and burial as well as termination and testing of seventy nine 33kV inter-array cables.

The project execution will start in 2017 with cable installation activities scheduled for 2018 and 2019, VBMS informed.

Arno van Poppel, managing director VBMS said: “The conclusion of this contract for the largest offshore wind project in Germany to date, is a great achievement. Being able to offer EnBW an
integrated cabling solution is an important step in further reducing the cost of renewable energy.”

The Hohe See offshore wind farm is situated approximately 90 kilometers north of the island of Borkum in the German North Sea. The project will cover an area of around 40 square kilometers
with water depths of up to 40 meters.
