JECS Offshore Services has secured a contract to provide support to Hellenic Cables during termination works on the export cables at the SeaMade offshore wind farm in Belgium.
JECS Offshore will design, supply and erect the scaffolding access platforms required for technicians to prepare and position the cables and carry out the terminations of the cables to the project’s two offshore platforms and connections into Elia’s Modular Offshore Grid (MOG) platform.
The UK-based company is also in charge of reconstructing the cable containment systems on both offshore platforms and the MOG for all cable connections.
A few days ago, DEME’s cable-laying vessel Living Stone picked up the export cables for SeaMade at Hellenic Cables’ facility in Soussaki, Greece, and began its trip towards Vlissingen, the Netherlands.
SeaMade comprises the 252MW Seastar and the 235MW Mermaid offshore wind projects which will feature 58 Siemens Gamesa 8.0-167 DD turbines installed some 40-50km off the coast of Ostend
The 487MW offshore wind farm will be Belgium’s largest once commissioned in 2020.
