Global Offshore Gears for Kriegers Flak Job
Global Marine’s division Global Offshore will soon begin work for offshore wind power developer and operator Vattenfall.
The contract will see Global Offshore completing the inter-array cable installation, burial, testing and termination at the 72 turbine Danish Kriegers Flak site, located in the Baltic Sea.
Installation work will be completed by the Global Symphony, supported by the Group’s fleet.
The project will be engineered and executed by Global Offshore’s team, who have completed over 23 offshore wind farm cable projects, including most recently work at Kincardine, Merkur and the Rampion Offshore Wind Farms.
Global Offshore’s work on site will begin with boulder clearance utilising a brand new, multi-function pre-lay and backfill subsea plough.
Osbit will deliver the plough to coincide with the project start.
According to Global Offshore, the plough minimises the operational risk and time required to install subsea cables utilising unrivalled single pass capability that delivers boulder clearance and pre-trenching up to 1.7m, in a single run.
Mike Daniel, managing director of Global Offshore, said: “Our team’s work will be begin on site in summer 2019 with boulder clearance along the cable installation route utilising our new pre-lay plough, which is an exciting new tool for our subsea business.”
“We’re pleased to be working with our CWind colleagues within the Global Marine Group who will be completing the cable pull-in activities on site. This key renewable project showcases the value and strength of the whole Group, and our collaborative and complimentary offering which combines wide-ranging experience in multiple offshore sectors, all supported by technical knowledge and recognised engineering capabilities.”
