VBMS to Deliver East Anglia ONE Inter-Array Cables

Boskalis’ subsidiary VBMS has been awarded a cabling contract with a value of approximately EUR 100 million by ScottishPower Renewables, for the East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm.

The scope of work for VBMS consists of the supply, installation and burial, as well as termination and testing of 102 66kV inter-array cables.

The project execution should begin in the first quarter of 2019 with completion scheduled for mid-2020.

East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm will consist of up to 102 wind turbines, generating an overall capacity of up to 714 megawatts, and will be located approximately 43 kilometers off the Suffolk Coast in the southern North Sea.

ScottishPower Renewables, a subsidiary of Iberdrola Renovables, has been awarded four projects by the Crown Estate.

Charlie Jordan, ScottishPower Renewables director for East Anglia ONE, said: “VBMS have a great deal of experience and expertise in delivering subsea power cable installations. We look forward to working with them on East Anglia ONE, and we are pleased that another major element of our project is progressing well. Like all of our contracts, we will be working hard to deliver as much UK content as possible as well.”

VBMS CEO, Arno van Poppel, said: “We are very proud that VBMS has been awarded this prestigious contract for the first of four projects in the East Anglia Zone, and also very pleased to continue the relationship between Boskalis and Iberdrola. This major contract is a great achievement and consolidates the company’s presence in the United Kingdom, as well as showing our ability to deliver large, multidisciplinary projects. Our continuous focus on safety, quality and efficiency enables us to contribute to the most cost-effective offshore wind farm in the UK.”
