DeepOcean is contracted by NSW for the marine works associated with the transportation, installation and burial of the HVAC cables from the DolWin gamma converter platform towards the Merkur offshore substation.

In addition to the transportation, installation and trenching of the two parallel export cables, the work scope includes a burial assessment study, route surveys, route engineering, pre lay grapnel runs, installation of cable protection systems and pre/post-lay crossing protection works.

The work is scheduled to be executed in 2018 by DeepOcean’s in-house fleet of dedicated offshore installation and trenching vessels.
