First Subsea Lands Hornsea Project One CPS Deal

Lancaster-based First Subsea has signed a multi-million pound contract with DONG Energy for Hornsea Project One offshore wind farm cable protection systems (CPS).

The order is for 151 CPS units, and marks the first major UK contract in renewables for First Subsea, which should allow the business to diversify into this market.

John Shaw, managing director, said: “This contract agreement is the culmination of years of hard work at First Subsea and a very proud moment for us all. We recognised the growth of the renewables industry, particularly offshore wind, when we applied for the grant to develop our processes a few years ago. We knew it would be hugely beneficial in the long term if we were able to diversify.

“Delivering on this contract with a global player like DONG Energy will demonstrate our capabilities to the rest of the offshore wind industry, both in the UK and hopefully wider into Europe too. I can’t stress how much of a great opportunity this is for our business.”

Hornsea Project One will be built 120 kilometres off the Yorkshire Coast. It will be the first offshore wind farm with a capacity over 1GW and capable of powering well over one million homes.
