CWind has secured a five-year cable repair framework agreement with Vattenfall, covering their European assets.

The framework, which covers cable repair, fault-finding and diving operations, is supported by Global Marine Group’s fleet of cable ships and crew transfer vessels.

Several wind farms will be included under the new five-year cable repair framework agreement, including Thanet, Kentish Flats and Ormonde in the UK, DanTysk and Sandback in Germany, Horns Rev 1 and the Kriegers Flak site currently in development in Denmark.

Director of Power Cables, Andrew Lloyd, said, “As a business, we are passionate about protecting and rapidly rectifying power cable faults in this growing, critical infrastructure market. More and more, a larger population is becoming increasingly reliant on the consistent power Vattenfall delivers to households and industries across Europe and we are pleased to be collaborating with one of the biggest operators in this market to ensure this service remains reliable for customers.

“Currently, the recognized industry average time to repair a power cable is approximately 100 days. Utilizing pre-engineered scenario plans, and the pre-mobilized ASV Pioneer which is on standby in Blyth, we are able to respond rapidly to incidents and reduce operational downtime by up to sixty percent and potentially improving speed of repair to just 40 days, representing an entirely new level of service and reliability in the industry.”

Kerstin Wessel, project manager Marine Operations at Vattenfall added: “We are delighted to welcome CWind as part of our Fast Response Plan framework. CWind will play an important and critical role in ensuring that we are prepared and able to respond quickly to power cable faults offshore should they arise, guaranteeing the highest level of service our customers expect.”
