VBMS in Gwynt y Môr Cable Repair
Balfour Beatty, the international infrastructure group, has contracted VBMS to conduct cable repairs at Gwynt y Môr offshore wind farm.
The repairs on the cable are undertaken by multipurpose vessel, NDurance, in Mostyn area, the company’s spokesperson confirmed.
The work, which started on May 12, 2015, is expected to be completed by the end of May, early June.
During the project the NDurance will be operating on DP and picking up/laying cable, and as such it will be restricted to manoeuvre, the company noted.
To remind, Balfour Beatty reached a financial close and completed the acquisition of the Gwynt y Môr offshore transmission project (OFTO) in the UK in February this year.
The Gwynt y Môr OFTO is the high-voltage electricity transmission system connecting the 576MW offshore wind farm, in North Wales, to the onshore transmission grid.
