VBMS today shared photos of its three cable-laying vessels: Stemat Spirit, Ndurance and Ndeavor, currently carrying out the inter-array and export cable installation project at the Galloper offshore wind farm in the UK.

Stemat Spirit is deployed on the inter-array cable installation, with 26 of 56 cables in place, according to information from 17 May. The laying of the second export cable is also under way, with Ndurance performing the works.

The Galloper offshore wind farm is an extension of the existing and fully operational Greater Gabbard and will comprise 56 Siemens wind turbines, each with a capacity of 6MW. The first turbine was installed from Swire Blue Ocean’s wind turbine installation vessel (WTIV) Pacific Orca on 16 May.

Innogy SE is leading the development and construction of the GBP 1.5 billion wind farm on behalf of all of the project partners, including Siemens Financial Services, UK Green Investment Bank, and Macquarie Capital.

The offshore construction phase started in June 2016 and is expected to be completed in late 2017.

The wind farm is expected to be commissioned in early 2018.
