The company is looking for a contractor to install a loose rock berm covering 144 cable protection systems and cables within and on top of the existing scour prevention design.

The tender is open until 31 January 2022 and the contract awarded under this procedure will run for one month.

Sandbank offshore wind farm has been in operation since 2017. The wind farm also has a 288 MW capacity and its 72 Siemens Gamesa 4 MW turbines are spinning some 90 kilometres west of Sylt.

In September, Vattenfall issued a tender for inter-array cable repairs and jointing work, expected to start in the summer of 2022, in Sweden as well as in Germany, where the company owns the Sandbank and DanTysk offshore wind farms.
