Under commission from the Danish company DONG Energy, VSMC will start laying and burying approximately 11 kilometres of export cable along the East coast of England, near Hull. The cables will transport electricity generated at the 210 MW offshore wind farm to the onshore grid.
VSMC will be partnering with Boskalis Offshore to perform these projects.
Statement from Arno van Poppel, VSMC CEO
'We are very pleased to have been awarded such great contracts. The Humber Gateway Offshore Wind Farm will be our first project working directly for E.on. And the work on the Westermost Rough allows us to continue the very fine partnership we have with DONG.' Both E.on and DONG have ownership shares in the London Array, the largest offshore wind farm in Europe. VSMC performed a significant portion of the work on that project, as well. 'These contracts demonstrate just how much confidence the market has in us,' Van Poppel says.
