CWind, a unit of Global Marine Group, has secured a five-year cable repair framework with Transmission Capital Partner (TCP), who are responsible for a number of wind farms including Barrow, Gunfleet Sands, Ormonde, Robin Rigg, Lincs and Westermost Rough Offshore Transmission Owners.
The service is supported by Global Marine Group’s fleet of cable ships and crew transfer vessels.
The company’s cable lay barge vessel ASV Pioneer is on permanent standby at CWind’s offshore service hub in Blyth, UK. The framework agreement also gives TCP access to Global Marine Group’s other assets if required for work in deeper waters.
“This landmark partnership demonstrates the appeal of our robust and proactive approach to long-term cable care. We’re pleased to collaborate with TCP as their risk reduction and repair partner. The agreement raises the standard across the industry for proactive intervention to cable repairs, preventing faults from occurring in the first place,” said Mike Daniel, managing director of CWind.
