CT Offshore enters Gwynt y Môr OWF

Monday, Jan 27, 2014

Last week an agreement was finalised and signed between CT Offshore and Gwynt y Môr Offshore Wind Farm Limited, covering free-laying, installation and burial of 63 cables of the in total 161 inter-array cables at one of Europe’s largest offshore wind farms.

The cable laying and installation will be conducted by the company’s own cable laying vessel SIA, which has already arrived at Gwynt y Môr and will start the cable installation once fully mobilised.

To carry out the post lay burial of the cables in scope, CT Offshore has entered into a framework agreement with Fugro Subsea Services Limited, as principle subcontractor. They will bring in the vessel SALTIRE to bury the cables subsequently using their Q1400 trencher.

CEO at CT Offshore, Frank Hansen says: "CT Offshore is very content with the agreement made with RWE and we really look forward to joining the Gwynt y Môr project. Following our latest success in the Irish Sea on West of Duddon Sands, we feel confident that with the Fugro team alongside, we will accomplish well and in due time."

RWE npower renewables’ Gwynt y Môr Project Director, Toby Edmonds, said: "This contract will see CT Offshore and its subcontractor, Fugro, install 63 array cables at Gwynt y Môr.

Offshore construction, eight miles off the North Wales coast in Liverpool Bay, is progressing well with 113 of the 160 turbines now in place, first generation achieved last August and only 11 foundations left to be installed. Construction is on schedule to be completed later this year."
