The project will help to fulfil the UK's commitment to reducing CO2 emissions and will contribute towards the UK achieving its targets of electricity generation from renewable energy schemes.

VBMS was contracted to carry out the following: to conduct cable burial trials and to load 14 km of 150kV export cable in Rotterdam; to perform the cable pull-in through a pre-installed pipeline; to carry out simultaneous cable burial and laying; and to install and test the export cable on the offshore substation. The operation to install the cable was carried out in February 2014, starting from the landfall at Tunstall.

The installation was supported from Grimsby on the Humber ‘Energy Estuary’.
