Nexans Norway is set for the installation of the second section of the export cable at the Beatrice offshore wind farm in the Outer Moray Firth.
The work is set to begin on November 02, 2017.
According to Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Ltd. (BOWL) notice, the second length of export cable EC1 (EC1-2) will be jointed to the end of installed cable length EC1-1.
The estimated duration of work associated with the EC1-2 cable installation is 10 days, depending on the weather condition, the company noted.
Nexans will be using its cable laying vessel Nexans Skagerrak for the installation of the second section of the export cable.
The operations will be supported by two guard vessels, Artemis and Atlas which will guard the operations during cable jointing and lay and thereafter guard the unprotected cable on the seabed.
A further guard vessel, Morning Dawn, will continue to operate to the south of the EC1-2 cable length, to guard the unprotected sections of cable EC1-1.
