Video: Export Cable Installation at Eneco Luchterduinen
In October 2014, VBMS installed the export cable for the Eneco Luchterduinen offshore wind farm, executed by the CLV Ndurance and the Trenchformer.
The unique multi-purpose trencher, developed and built by VBMS and Boskalis, used its jetting sword to bury the cable 3 metres deep near the shore. The installation of the shore end landing and the first 3 kilometres of simultaneous laying and burying of the export cable have been captured in the 5-minute timelapse video below.
Eneco Luchterduinen, located approximately 25 kilometres offshore from Noordwijk in the Netherlands, comprises 43 wind turbines with an output of 129 MW.
