Prysmian’s cable laying vessels, Cable Enterprise and Ulisse, arrived in the US with submarine cables manufactured and tested at the company’s centres of technological excellence in Pikkala, Finland, and Arco Felice, Italy.

In November, Cable Enterprise installed the two offshore sections of about twelve kilometres each, while Ulisse is currently installing the first nearshore section (27 kilometres) after the completion of pull-in through HDD in Covell’s Beach.

Located approximately 24 kilometres off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, Vineyard Wind 1 will feature 62 GE Haliade-X 13 MW wind turbines, scheduled to produce first power next year.

Once fully completed, the 819 MW wind farm will produce enough green electricity for more than 400,000 homes and businesses in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The project is being built by Vineyard Wind, LLC, a joint venture between Avangrid Renewables, a subsidiary of Iberdrola, and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP). In August this year, Avangrid finalised an agreement to assume responsibility as the operations and management services provider for Vineyard Wind 1.
