Global Marine Group trio to install Arcadis Ost 1 cables
Global Marine Group companies Global Offshore, CWind, and OceanIQ will install the inter-array cables at the Arcadis Ost 1 offshore wind farm in Germany, under a turnkey contract signed with Parkwind.
Global Offshore will install and bury the inter-array cables by using the Normand Clipper and Global Symphony vessels, with the work scheduled to commence in the second half of 2022.
The company will carry out the project management and marine engineering, supply and install cable protection systems (CPS), and perform pre- and post-lay surveys, cable loading and laying, as well as cable burial and post-burial survey.
As part of the turnkey package, OceanIQ will provide route engineering services for the project, while CWind will be providing crew transfer vessels (CTVs) and cable pull-in services.
The inter-array cables for Arcadis Ost 1 will be manufactured and delivered by JDR.
Parkwind reached financial close on the Arcadis Ost 1 offshore wind farm, its first project in Germany, in June of this year.
The 257 MW project will comprise 27 Vestas 9.5 MW wind turbines installed on XXL monopiles fabricated by Steelwind.
The offshore wind farm, located northeast of the island of Rügen in the German sector of the Baltic Sea, is scheduled to be fully operational in 2023.
