Hornsea Two onshore cables in place

VolkerInfra has completed the onshore cable installation for the Hornsea Two offshore wind project in the UK.

VolkerInfra installed a total of 350 km of cable over 39 km of Lincolnshire land, reaching from the wind farm’s landfall point at Horseshoe Point to North Killingholme.

Reinstatement works are expected to continue on the ground until mid-2021.

“The team has successfully completed the installation of three 220kV circuits along the 39km onshore cable route for the Hornsea two wind farm,” said Mark Robinson, VolkerInfra senior operations manager.

“The route runs from the coastal section at Horseshoe Point in Tetney, to the substation site in North Killingholme, and was delivered ahead of schedule.”

Hornsea Two will comprise 165 Siemens Gamesa 8 MW turbines located some 89 km north-east of Grimsby.

The 1.4 GW project entered the offshore construction phase in October, while commissioning is scheduled for 2022.
