VBMS Gets Walney Extension Inter-Array Cabling

VBMS has been awarded a contract by DONG Energy for the installation of 87 inter-array cables for the Walney Extension offshore wind farm.

The total scope of work for VBMS will consist of (route) engineering, a pre-lay grapnel run, cable transport, cable installation & trenching.

The project will be executed by VBMS’ in-house owned and operated cable-laying vessels and trenching tools.

The Walney Extension OWF will have a maximum capacity of 660 MW and is located approximately 19 kilometres off the west coast of England, next to the 367.2 MW Walney 1 & 2 offshore wind farms, for which VBMS installed the export and inter-array cables between 2009 and 2011.

To remind, in Octobet last year, CT Offshore was selected for the job, however, the Danish offshore wind farm installation and services company, A2SEA, has decided that its cable installation subsidiary will not be taking on any more projects, and that all of its vessels and equipment will be sold.
