Van Oord has signed up WIND to support the cable transfer in preparation for its 2018 cable installation campaign at the Borkum Riffgrund II offshore wind farm.

The first stage of the contract will start in March 2018 in the port of Nordenham, Germany. This will consist of spooling 36 cable reels and 4 static tanks of array cable onto Van Oord’s cable-laying vessel Nexus.

Once Van Oord has installed the cables, WIND’s involvement will continue in Harwich, UK. Here, WIND will support Van Oord with ship-to-shore cable transfer operations from the Nexus to an onshore storage facility for any remaining cable. This part is scheduled for June 2018.

“We are very proud that Van Oord has once again entrusted us with coordinating their cable transfer logistics. This contract will strengthen our already long relationship,” states WIND commercial director Erik Thomas. “Our teams are well prepared to carry out these transfers as safely and efficiently as possible.”
