Wind energy – cable installation
DEME Offshore has successfully installed the DolWin6 High Voltage DC (HVDC) cable in the North Sea deploying its DP3 vessel Living Stone.
This is the first time a cable laying vessel has installed cables while powered on LNG, dramatically reducing emissions.
Living Stone picked up the cables directly from the Nexans manufacturing facility in Halden, Norway at the beginning of June and transported them to the offshore site in the German Bight.
DEME’s dedicated vessel really showcased its unique capabilities. Living Stone has two turntables so it is ideally suited for installing bundled HVDC cables. The HVDC cable pair was bundled together with the fibre optic cable and seamlessly installed.
