VBMS finishes Galloper array cables

Posted by VBMS on


VBMS has installed the last of the 56 inner-array cables at the Galloper offshore wind farm off the east coast of England in the North Sea.

The work was carried out by the company's cable lay vessel Ndurance which was equipped with a HD3 plough which it used to simultaneously lay and bury 70km of cable.

The construction of Galloper is scheduled to be complete by spring 2018 and once operational it is expected to meet the needs of approximately 300,000 households.

Swire Blue Ocean's jack-up installation vessel Pacific Orca is installing the turbines at the site, operating from the Outer Harbour of the Port of Great Yarmouth.

innogy is leading the development and construction of Galloper on behalf of its partners the UK Green Investment Bank, Siemens Financial Services, Sumitomo Corporation and Macquarie Capital.
