Ocean Installer has been awarded an offshore wind contract with Norddeutsche Seekabelwerke GmbH.
“We are very pleased that we are able to secure a very interesting project within the offshore renewables wind market and demonstrate our capabilities on such a project,” says Steinar Riise, CEO Ocean Installer.
The scope of work includes recovery of two pre-laid HVAC export power cables in the 500 m zone of the Gode Wind 1 OSS (offshore substation), relay of the cable, installation of the centralizer cable protection system and pull-in to the transformer platform.
Ocean Installer will use its construction support vessel (CSV) Normand Vision for the project. This is the vessel’s first project within renewable energy after taking on several projects globally and on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, including work for Statoil and Norske Shell.
The location of the project is in German waters, in the southern sector of the North Sea.
According to the company, the offshore installation has started. The project management and engineering is located in Ocean Installer’s Stavanger Office.
