Chelmsford-based CWind has won a contract to deliver all cable pull-in services for 66 offshore wind turbines and one offshore substation at the 396MW Merkur offshore wind farm in the German North Sea.

The contract for CWind, which is part of the Global Marine Group and delivers the company’s power capabilities, has been awarded by Tideway, part of the DEME Group, a global leader in dredging, marine engineering and environmental remediation.

Pre-project engineering is already underway, with CWind technicians and equipment expected on site by September 2017 to deliver the main cable pull-in campaign. Training at CWind’s Barrow-in-Furness offshore wind training facility is currently being arranged for the Tideway team, focusing specifically on cable termination and testing.

“CWind is known for our “Right First Time” approach and has vast understanding with this type of project, having competed 421 cable pull-ins to date. This experience and know-how provides our clients complete confidence in our teams’ capabilities,” said Lee Andrews, Managing Director of CWind.

“With pre-project engineering already in progress, this prestigious project supports our group vision of engineering a clean and connected future for the offshore power sector.”

The Merkur wind farm is currently being constructed 45km from the island of Borkum and is scheduled for completion in 2018.
