Correll Services joins Subsea 7 on Virginia offshore wind demo project
Correll Services has secured a contract by Subsea 7 US LLC for cable pull, termination and testing works on the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) demonstration project.
“The award of this contract has provided an opportunity to demonstrate a concept we’ve been considering for a long time,” said Managing Director Sam Dowey.
“We‘re convinced that utilising an integrated team that combines cable-pull, termination & testing activities is a major step forward in improving offshore efficiencies.”
Back in 2018, Subsea 7 won a contract for the supply and installation of inter-array cables at the 12 MW project.
The CVOW pilot project will comprise two 6 MW Siemens Gamesa turbines, installed on EEW’s monopile foundations, some 43.5km off the coast of Virginia Beach.
Offshore construction is set to start later this spring, with commissioning expected by the end of the year.
