Dutch offshore contractor Van Oord said it has completed the cable installation work for the Borkum Riffgrund 2 project in the German North Sea.

Van Oord was hired by Ørsted in 2016 to transport, install and bury the infield cables for the offshore wind farm.

Cable-laying vessel Nexus was deployed to install the infield cables, including interlink cables to the Borkum Riffgrund 1 offshore substation.

The cables for Borkum Riffgrund 2 were manufactured by Nexans in Hanover. The SMD-built trencher Dig-It buried the cables into the seabed.

The wind farm is located 45 kilometers off the coast of Lower Saxony, Germany. It consists of 56 wind turbines with a total capacity of 450 MW.

Full commissioning of the offshore wind farm is planned for 2019.
