After EnBW recently reached the final investment decision for the 112MW Albatros offshore wind farm and awarded the Tier 1 supply contracts, VBMS – in charge of inter-array cabling – informed that part of the scope is to interconnect Albatros and EnBW Hohe See.
The Albatros contract includes the supply, installation and burial as well as termination and testing of nineteen 33kV inter-array cables.
The cable installation activities are scheduled for 2019, following the installation of 79 inter-array cables for the nearby 497MW EnBW Hohe See offshore wind farm.
The 11-square-kilometre Albatros offshore wind farm is located in the so-called ‘exclusive economic zone’ of the German North Sea, adjacent to EnBW’s Hohe See offshore wind farm.
The two wind farms will feature a total of 87 Siemens SWT-7.0-154 wind turbines with a combined capacity of 609MW.
