Seaway Offshore Cables was awarded the contract for the turnkey engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning (EPIC) works related to the inner array grid cable system of the Kaskasi offshore wind farm project by innogy Kaskasi.
The Kaskasi offshore wind farm is located approx. 35 km north-west of the island of Heligoland within the German Bight sector of the North Sea. The OWF consists of 38 wind turbine generators, each with a capacity of up to 9.0 MW and is based on an inner array grid of 42 medium voltage aluminium core submarine composite cables with a total length of up to 52km.
The submarine composite cables are to be manufactured and supplied by Twentsche Kabelfabriek (part of TKH Group) and are subsequently to be installed by Seaway Offshore Cables utilising dedicated in-house resources such as the Cable Lay Vessel Seaway Aimery and Installation Support Vessel Seaway Moxie.
