The company’s scope of work included cable supply, CPS, installation, post lay burial, and termination & testing of 76 infield cables.

VBMS deployed its multipurpose vessels Ndurance and Ndeavor in order to simultaneously perform cable installation and placement of messenger wires, cable burial, cable connection, and cable testing works. For the project, the company launched its in-house post-lay burial ROV 107-1100.

When completed in 2017, the Sandbank offshore wind farm will comprise 72 Siemens 4MW wind turbines. The installation vessel MPI Adventure started installing the turbines at the site in July, and as of 18 August, 10 units had been assembled.

The wind farm’s offshore substation was installed in April. The 72 wind turbine foundations were put in place in mid-February 2016.
