Export cable installation


Among VBMS' specialities is export cable installation for offshore wind farms. VBMS covers the supply and installation from on to offshore substations and everything in-between. Our experienced project teams tirelessly collaborate to devise the best solution to fit client needs, on time and within budget.


VBMS is exclusively positioned to deploy the custom-built Stemat Spirit and Ndurance vessels. Our vessels have a dynamic positioning and mooring system. This system enables them to beach and operate in shallow water and also withstand heavy power cable installation. The Ndurance has the same capabilities as the Stemat Spirit, but with an increased turntable capacity.
