Boskalis secures offshore cable installation work

Royal Boskalis Westminster subsidiary VBMS, in consortium with NKT Cables, has been awarded a contract by TenneT for the installation of two export cables that will connect the Borssele offshore wind farms 1 and 2 to TenneT’s onshore grid in the Netherlands.

The contract value of Boskalis’ share is approximately EUR70m ($78m). Separately, the option has been awarded for the installation of the export cables that will connect the Borssele offshore wind farms 3 and 4 to the Dutch onshore grid, subject to financial close.

To minimize maintenance to the cables during their operational lifetime, Boskalis will pre-sweep and dredge the shallow parts of the route, which will enable VBMS to simultaneously lay and bury the export cables at the required depth.

The project is scheduled for 2018-2019.
