CT Offshore completing cable installation at Borkum Riffgrund 1 OWF
(WK-intern) – Last week yet another project was completed by CT Offshore. In total 44 inter-array cables have successfully been installed and buried at the DONG Energy wind farm Borkum Riffgrund 1.
Once again our cable laying vessel SIA and crew showed a terrific performance. “The valuable experience gained from the West of Duddon Sands and Gwynt y Môr projects earlier this year has played an important role to secure a smooth running project”, says Hans Peter Johannsen, Director of Project Management.
“It has been our first large project in German waters and our ROV and trenching team has in the best and fastest way possible managed to bury the cables, using the VOS SYMPATHY vessel followed by our survey vessel MV SANDER 2”, he continues.
The next large project planned for CT Offshore is the Gode Wind 2+1 project. A contract, the company was awarded earlier this year.
