Boskalis’s cable laying vessel Stemat Spirit has started loading inter-array cables for the 497MW EnBW Hohe See offshore wind farm project.
Stemat Spirit is expected to arrive on the Hohe See wind farm in the German North Sea by the second week of August, a spokesperson for Boskalis told Offshore WIND.
AIS data shows that the vessel is currently in Velsen-Noord, the Netherlands.
EnBW contracted Boskalis to supply, install and bury, as well as terminate and test, seventy-nine 33kV inter-array cables on the Hohe See wind farm. The company is also in charge of the inter-array cable works on the adjacent 112MW EnBW Albatros, as well as of inter-connecting the two wind farms.
Hohe See and Albatros will feature a total of 87 Siemens SWT-7.0-154 wind turbines with a combined capacity of 609MW. The development of the two wind farms is being carried out as a joint project, scheduled for completion in 2019.
