The cable repair barge ‘Vetag 8’ is in Liverpool waiting for its next job on wind energy project located offshore Barrow-in-Furness.
Along with the two support tugs ‘MTS Valiant’ and ‘Multrasalvor 3’, the barge will be mobilized in the Lune deep/Heysham lake area to repair the damaged West of Duddon Sands export cable.
All of the Inter-Array or Infield Cables have been surface laid and are now being buried by ‘Maersk Responder’.

The wind farm will feature 108 Siemens Wind Power SWP 3.6 MW wind turbines with a 120 metre rotor diameter.
