SeaRenergy has secured a contract from cable manufacturer ZTT to provide QHSE services for the HVAC export cable connection between BorWin Gamma platform and Hohe See offshore wind farm.
The scope for QHSE management and support includes the cable load-out, cable transport and installation phase of the project as well as the commissioning and testing phase.
SeaRenergy has started its contractual duties and completion is scheduled for Q2 2019, the company said.
EnBW’s Hohe See offshore wind project, with 497 megawatts capacity, will be installed at a site 90 kilometers north of the German island Borkum in the North Sea at water depths of up to 40 meters.
BorWin3 is a 160km long grid connection that will link several wind farms off the coast of Lower Saxony to the mainland. The 155kV alternating current supplied by the wind farms will be transformed into 320kV direct current on the BorWin gamma offshore platform.
The BorWin3 link will transport power via cable over 130km at sea and a further 30km on land to the grid feed-in point in Emden. The direct current will then be converted back into alternating current for further transmission and distribution.
