MacArtney Provides Winches for Borkum Riffgrund OWF

MacArtney has supplied winches for cable-pulling operation on the Borkum Riffgrund offshore wind farm project.

The scope of supply of this Fulgor/Hellenic Cables order includes two MacArtney 150 kN and 200 kN electrical cable pulling winches.

The purpose of the winches is to bring inter array cables and export cables from the seabed onto the substation deck. The power cables are to be pulled through a number of J-tubes onto the substation for connection. The 200 kN winch is a stationary winch for pulling export cables, and the 150 kN winch rorates 360 degrees, enabling a straight pull to all J-tubes.

MacArtney supplies additional equipment consisting of a ‘capacity reduction mode’ which enables cable installers to use smaller sheave blocks to install the inter array cables. In addition, the supply includes an integrated data logger with a 15.4 inch HMI, and 360 degrees rotation.
