VBMS, a subsidiary of Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. (Boskalis), has been awarded an inter-array cabling contract by EnBW Albatros GmbH for the 112MW Albatros Offshore Wind Farm.
The contract includes the supply, installation and burial as well as termination and testing of nineteen (19) 33kV inter-array cables. The cable installation activities are scheduled for 2019, following the installation of seventy nine (79) inter-array cables for the nearby 497MW EnBW Hohe See offshore wind farm. Part of the Albatros scope for VBMS is to interconnect both wind farms.
The 11-square-kilometre Albatros offshore wind farm is located in the so-called ‘exclusive economic zone’ of the German North Sea, adjacent to EnBW’s Hohe See offshore wind farm.
