WIND to Provide Cable Storage for German Offshore Wind Pair
WIND Cable Services B.V. has won a long-term cable storage contract by EnBW for the Hohe See and Albatros offshore wind farms in Germany.
Under the agreement, the Netherlands-based company will provide storage of the spare inter-array cable for the two projects.
Boskalis is in charge of the supply, installation, burial, termination and testing of seventy-nine 33kV inter-array cables on the Hohe See wind farm. The company is also responsible for the inter-array works on Albatros, as well as for inter-connecting the two projects.
The 497MW EnBW Hohe See and the 112MW Albatros offshore wind farms will comprise a total of 87 Siemens Gamesa SWT-7.0-154 turbines.
The two wind farms are expected to be put into operation by the end of the year.
