Van Oord picks Baltic Eagle inter-array cables
Van Oord has awarded TKF with a contract to provide the inter-array cables for the Baltic Eagle offshore wind project in Germany.
TKF is in charge of the production and delivery of approximately 79 kilometers of 66 kV inter-array cables and corresponding accessories.
Van Oord’s cable-laying vessel Nexus and the trencher Dig-It will be used for the inter-array cable laying.
Offshore works for the project will commence in 2023.
“We are very pleased that Van Oord is once again calling on our expertise, this time for the Baltic Eagle project in the German Baltic Sea. We are proud that we can make a contribution to the European target for CO₂ reduction with our unique Premium Dry cable design,” said Walter Heerts, TKF’s business line director for Building & Industry.
The Baltic Eagle offshore wind farm is being developed 30 kilometers northeast of the Rügen island off the Pomeranian coast in the Baltic Sea, in a water depth of 40-45 meters.
The 476 MW wind farm will comprise 50 Vestas V174-9.5 MW turbines, which will be pre-assembled and installed out of Port of Roenne in 2024.
