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 Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm project by Seagreen Wind Energy, part of SSE Renewables.
The Seagreen offshore wind farm is located approx. 27 km east of the coast of Scotland within the UK sector of the North Sea. The OWF consists of 114 wind turbine generators, each with a capacity of up to 9.5 MW and is based on an inner array grid of 114 medium voltage aluminium core submarine composite cables with a total length of up to 328km.
The submarine composite cables are to be manufactured and supplied by Hellenic Cables (part of Cenergy Holdings) and are subsequently to be installed by Seaway Offshore Cables utilising dedicated in-house resources.
