VSMC to Install Export Cable for Eneco Luchterduinen OWF

Cabling specialist VSMC, a joint VolkerWessels and Boskalis company has been awarded a contract by EPC contractor Van Oord Offshore Wind Projects bv to install and bury a 25km long export cable for the Eneco Luchterduinen Offshore Wind Farm.

The Eneco Luchterduinen Offshore Wind Farm, to be built by Eneco and Mitsubishi Corporation, will be situated in the North Sea, 23 km off the coast, between Noordwijk and Zandvoort, the Netherlands. With 43 wind turbines in total, Luchterduinen will provide up to 150,000 Dutch homes with green energy.

The project will be executed in September of this year using the in-house developed burial tool, the Trenchformer and the newly built cable-laying vessel, the Ndurance; designed for both shallow and deep water operations.

Arno van Poppel, CEO of VSMC said: “We are very pleased to have signed such an important contract and are very proud to contribute to the Dutch government’s ambition of producing 14% of total electricity from renewable sources by 2020.”
