Global Marine Delivers Prinses Amaliawindpark Cable Reburial Project

Global Marine Group (GMG) has completed a remedial cable burial project for Prinses Amaliawindpark (PAWP), a wind farm off the Netherlands’ West Coast.

PAWP covers an area of around 14km2 and comprises of 60 wind turbines that are connected by eight in-field cable strings that converge at the central offshore high voltage station.

The project, operated by Eneco, was completed according to schedule and in conjunction with operational and safety standards.

GMG’s first project with Eneco has been executed by CWind, which is part of the GMG and is responsible for delivering the company’s power capabilities. The project utilised CWind’s in-house resources including the CS Recorder and the Q1000, ROV jet trenching system.

The 28km shore connection cable responsible for delivering power to the onshore substation was installed in 2007 and was trenched below the seabed to depths of up to three metres. Natural movement of the seabed in the subsequent ten years reduced its burial depth. As such, the main objective of the project was to rebury the cable to ensure its protection in commercial waters, and to comply with the site’s permit requirements.

Lee Andrews, managing director of CWind, said: “Key to the success of the PAWP assignment was our ability to respond quickly to the client’s requirements by drawing on available in-house resources and, of course, our wide experience in offshore wind farm engineering. We completed the project in just three weeks with utmost safety and efficiency – great work by all concerned.”
