Jan De Nul has been awarded a framework deal by TenneT for repairs of offshore high-voltage cables in the German Bight.
The scope entails repairs of all TenneT’s existing HVAC cable systems connecting individual wind farms to the offshore convertor stations or directly to the onshore grid, as well as repairs of all TenneT’s HVDC cable systems connecting the offshore convertor stations to the onshore grid.
In addition, any future connections commissioned within the duration of the agreement will be added to Jan De Nul’s scope.
The contract covers a period of 24 months with two optional extensions of 12 months each.
In the event of a cable system fault or failure, Jan De Nul will immediately mobilize one of its offshore cable laying vessels, either Isaac Newton or Willem de Vlamingh.
