TKF Picks Vos Prodect Hang-off Systems for Hohe See Array Cables
Vos Prodect Innovations has won a contract by TKF (Twentsche Kabelfabriek) for the design and supply of sealed inter-array cable hang-off systems for the 497MW Hohe See offshore wind farm project located in the German North Sea.
According to Vos Prodect, the company’s cable hang-off systems have been tested and validated against project specific requirements both for sealing and operational capabilities.
VBMS, a subsidiary of Boskalis, has won an inter-array cabling contract for the supply, installation and burial, as well as termination and testing, of the 79 33kV inter-array cables at the Hohe See wind farm. The cable installation activities are scheduled for 2018 and 2019.
Shortly after winning the Hohe See contract, VBMS announced it will be in charge of inter-array cabling for the 112MW Albatros offshore wind farm, which is adjacent to Hohe See. The company will also be in charge of interconnecting the two wind farms.
EnBW’s Albatros and Hohe See, located some 90km north of the island of Borkum, will feature a total of 107 Siemens SWT-7.0-154 wind turbines with a combined capacity of 609MW.
The development of the two wind farms will be carried out as a joint project, scheduled for completion in 2019, EnBW said.
