The scope of the project included design, engineering, supply and commissioning of the 24 km long 220 kV (kilovolt) AC (alternating current) submarine cable and the related offshore substation cable. On land, it comprised of 30 km of AC underground cables and the associated substation cables as well as the cable joints, accessories and terminations related to the project.
The project was executed according to plan and the complete scope was delivered on time including production, load out and jointing of the cables, despite the severe adverse weather conditions faced during the installation phase. The cable laying and civil works were carried out by another contractor with whom interface meetings were held. Our knowledge and experience with both cable and installation were a significant contributor to the success of the project.
Health and safety was of paramount importance throughout the project. This was clearly an area of very high focus, and by having a proactive approach together with the customer, there were no reported accidents or injuries that resulted in any lost time from work.
Finally, the cable system passed the site acceptance test – with excellent results and on time. After this successful cooperation, we received further orders from Ørsted showing that our customer is satisfied with the high quality of our efforts.
