Viking Link Needs Client Representatives

Danish transmission system operator Energinet is seeking client representatives for the 1400 MW Viking Link interconnector project.

Viking Link is a joint project of Energinet and the UK’s National Grid Viking Link Limited.

The tender calls for consultants working onboard the cable-laying vessels as client representatives for the full duration of the offshore cable laying campaigns.

The tendered contract will comprise eleven client representatives, including a Project Manager/Coordinator. During the cable laying campaign, two client representatives will be on board the cable-laying vessels. The client representatives will thus be working two and two in shifts, so that one pair will take over for another upon the crew change.

The installation of the subsea cable is expected to commence in the second quarter of 2021 and finish in the third quarter of 2023, consisting of seven individual laying campaigns.

The tender remains open until 26 May. The contract is valued at around EUR 1.5 million.

Scheduled to begin commercial operation at the end of 2023, Viking Link will be a 760-kilometre DC interconnector line between Revsing in southern Jutland, Denmark, and Bicker Fen in Lincolnshire, UK.

The interconnector’s marine cable route has an approximate length of 630 kilometres.

Prysmian will manufacture and install the entire 1,250-kilometre cable for the submarine route and all of the approximately 135 kilometres of land cables on the UK side.

NKT will manufacture and deliver the onshore cables to be installed in Denmark. Siemens will deliver two converter stations for the 1,400MW interconnector.
