Prysmian Starts Ostwind 1 Cable Laying Ops

The laying of the first kilometers of the subsea cable for the Ostwind 1 project has officially kicked off, German transmission system operator 50Hertz informed on Friday.

The Ostwind 1 project is part of the grid connection of the Westlich Adlergrund cluster and includes the connection of the Wikinger and Arkona Basin South-East wind farms to the grid.

Italian cable specialist Prysmian is responsible for the production and laying of the cables. The 124 meters long vessel Cable Enterprise, that picked up the cables earlier this year in Naples, is carrying out the installation of the first and the longest (27 kilometers) of the four sections.

The Ostwind 1 project cable routes cover 90 kilometres at sea and three kilometres on land, terminating at the 50Hertz substation of Lubmin.
