PHOTO: Jan De Nul Wraps Up Race Bank Export Cable Installation

Jan De Nul Group has completed the installation and burial of the export cables for DONG Energy’s Race Bank offshore wind farm in the United Kingdom.

Jan De Nul installed two export cables of 70 km and linked the two offshore substations with an interconnector of 6 km.

To execute the nearshore works in the Wash, Jan De Nul developed and built the low ground pressure cable installation and burial tools Sunfish and Moonfish.

Both machines were deployed from Jan De Nul’s cable installation barge DN120. Offshore cable installation vessel Isaac Newton played a key role in the cable installation and jointing works as well as in the cable burial works with onboard trencher UTV1200 across the shallow Docking Shoals.

David Summers senior project director for DONG Energy said, “Race Bank has challenging seabed conditions along the offshore export route and the cable installation was identified as one of the key risks to project success. Jan De Nul rose to the challenge applying their considerable engineering capability to the problems, especially in the nearshore. They have done a done a really great job.”
