Waves Group Joins Hornsea One Ranks

Waves Group is providing Marine Warranty Surveyor services during the construction of the world’s largest offshore wind farm – the 1.2GW Hornsea Project One.

The UK-based marine consultancy is providing the MWS services for the installation of the three 140+km subsea cable lengths along with the associated operations including loadouts, beach landing, pulling in cables to substations, crossing installation, offshore jointing, and cable burial.

The contract commenced in October 2016 and will be for the duration of the export cable installation phase into 2019.

The Hornsea Project One wind farm is being developed by Ørsted A/S and is an investment of over GBP 3 billion pounds. Located 120km off the Yorkshire coast, the wind farm covers approximately 407km2 and will comprise 174 Siemens Gamesa 7MW wind turbines. The commissioning is scheduled for 2020.

Earlier this year, Waves Group completed an MWS contract for the subsea export and array cables on another project for Ørsted, the 659MW Walney Extension, currently the world’s largest operating wind farm. The company has also recently been selected to provide MWS services for the 860MW Triton Knoll project.
