Wind energy – Dogger Bank
The announcement follows the earlier awarding of Dogger bank A and B inter-array cable contract in early 2021.
The scope of this new EPCI agreement includes the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the subsea cables for the 1.2 GW phase of the wind farm.
DEME Offshore will supply, install and protect approximately 250 km of 66 kV inter-array cables and all related accessories.
The cables will be installed in 2025 and DEME will once again be deploying its DP3 cable installation vessel ‘Living Stone’.
Production of the cable for Dogger Bank C is set to start in 2023.
Bart De Poorter, General Manager of DEME Offshore comments: “After securing the Dogger Bank A and B inter-array cable contract earlier this year, we are proud to now also confirm the inter-array cable contract for the Dogger Bank C wind farm. This contract not only demonstrates the unrivalled cable-laying capabilities by our DEME Offshore team, it is also further testament to the stellar reputation of the Living Stone.”
Simon Bailey, Commercial Director for Dogger Bank Wind Farm says: “We are delighted to award the contract for the supply, installation and protection of the inter-array cables at Dogger Bank C wind farm to DEME Offshore, extending our existing relationship with DEME on phases A and B to the third phase of this project.”
