LOC Renewables Nets Hornsea Project One Contract
LOC Renewables has been contracted by DONG Energy to provide early advice and marine warranty surveying (MWS) for the Hornsea Project One offshore substation and array cable installation packages.
Working with contractor teams on site, LOC will review the procedures and technical designs for the transportation and installation for offshore substations and for array cables connecting turbines to the substations.
With Hornsea Project One being larger and further from shore than any UK wind farm to date, LOC’s MWS service will provide assurance to the contractors, the developer, and their underwriters that the transportation and installation of all offshore substations and array cables will be conducted safely and effectively within the challenging operating conditions imposed by the project’s unique location, the company stated.
Mike McLachlan, Project Director for Renewables MWS at LOC, said: “The marine warranty services we’re providing will ensure that, when the construction phase gets under way, it builds on solid foundations that meet the highest technical standards.”
