Dutch high voltage offshore wind specialist Visser & Smit Hanab has been awarded the contract to perform all array cable terminations and testing work at the East Anglia One wind farm.
The scope of the work entails the 66kV array cable terminations in all 102 turbines, as well as the installation of the custom-designed cable management system and testing of the high voltage and fiber optic connections. The company will deploy its own 66kV VLF/PD testing equipment for the project.
“Being committed to the global energy transition, we have been focusing on offshore wind development for a decade now. Our dedicated and skilled teams are looking forward to contributing to this major wind farm,” said Arjan Paardekoper, General Manager Offshore Wind at Visser & Smit Hanab.
Offshore termination & testing activities are scheduled to start in the second quarter of 2019.
With an installed power capacity of 714MW, East Anglia One is expected to come online in 2020. The wind farm is being built some 59 kilometres off the coast of Lowestoft, the UK.
