WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff to Verify Subsea Cables for UK-Norway Link

WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff has been contracted by National Grid North Sea Link to provide cable manufacturing quality and inspection services on the EUR 2 billion interconnector between Norway and UK.

National Grid North Sea Link and Statnett are working together on the construction of a 1400 MW subsea interconnector between Kvilldal in Norway and Blyth in the UK.

Under the contract, a team of quality consultant engineers will provide third party inspection and audit services during the manufacture of the submarine and land cables supplied by Prysmian from Arco Felice in Italy.

WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff’s involvement will ensure that the cables are manufactured and tested to specification, and that all the quality documentation is in place prior to shipment and installation.

When constructed, the interconnector will consist of approximately 720 kilometers of High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) cable scheduled to be operational in 2021.

Michael Carr, quality services assistant project manager at WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff said: “This is a crucial renewable project for the whole of the UK, and we look forward to show the value we can bring for our client National Grid North Sea Link. To be part of the team that’s helping to deliver the longest subsea interconnector in the world is quite something and reinforces the high standing of the quality services team in the sector. The fact that the cable links into Blyth also adds a little extra touch for me, being from the area.
