Ocean Installer has been awarded an offshore wind contract with Norddeutsche Seekabelwerke GmbH. This strengthens Ocean Installer’s position in the European offshore wind market.
“We are very pleased that we are able to secure a very interesting project within the offshore renewables wind market and demonstrate our capabilities on such a project,” says Steinar Riise, CEO Ocean Installer AS.
The scope of work includes recovery of two pre-laid HVAC export power cables in the 500 m zone of the Gode Wind 1 OSS (offshore sub-station), relay of the cable, installation of the centralizer cable protection system and pull-in to the transformer platform.
Ocean Installer will use the highly advanced construction support vessel (CSV) Normand Vision for the project. This is the vessel’s first project within renewable energy after taking on several comprehensive projects globally and on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, including work for Statoil and Norske Shell.
The location of the project is in German waters, in the southern sector of the North Sea.
The offshore installation has commenced. The project management and engineering is located in Ocean Installer’s Stavanger Office.
