Helix finishes cable job at Moray East offshore wind farm

Helix Robotics Solutions has completed its second trenching campaign of the inter-array cables at the Moray East offshore wind project in Scotland.

The work was carried out by construction support vessel Grand Canyon III at the project site located some 22 kilometers off the Aberdeenshire coast.

All inter-array cables were laid at the Moray East wind farm at the beginning of April.

The overall work scope has been divided into two campaigns. The first inter-array cable installation campaign started on 11 November 2020 and was completed on 23 January.

The cable laying and burial within the second campaign commenced on 24 February. With all the cables in place now, the remaining works are expected to be completed by mid-June.

The 950 MW offshore wind farm, scheduled for commissioning in 2022, is being developed by Moray Offshore Windfarm East Ltd (MOWEL), a joint venture company of Ocean Winds (56.6%) Diamond Green Limited (33.4%), and CTG (10%).
