ACE Winches Reels In Beatrice Cable Work

ACE Winches is currently working on the Beatrice offshore wind farm project located in the Outer Moray Firth, Scotland.

The company is providing pull-in winches at the shore landfall site and at the offshore transformer modules (OTMs) for the high voltage export cables and inter-OTM cable.

In addition, three further winch packages are located on a cable-laying vessel, the company said.

The 588MW offshore wind farm will consist of 84 Siemens 7MW wind turbines and two Siemens OTMs, all placed on top of jacket foundations which are currently being installed some 13km off the Caithness coastline.

The cable laying vessel Siem Aimery, supported by CSV Siem Stingray, laid and trenched 16 inter-array cables in its first campaign covering 24 connections. The vessels left the site and will resume works around 1 March 2018.

The first turbines are expected to be installed in summer 2018, with the wind farm anticipated to be commissioned by the end of 2019.
