Offshore service provider DeepOcean has been awarded a contract by Norddeutsche Seekabelwerke (NSW) for export cable transportation, installation and trenching services related to the Merkur offshore wind farm development located in the German Bight.
Under the contract, DeepOcean is responsible for the marine works associated with the transportation, installation and burial of the HVAC cables from the DolWin gamma converter platform towards the Merkur offshore substation.
In addition, the work scope also includes a burial assessment study, route surveys, route engineering, pre lay grapnel runs, installation of cable protection systems and pre/post-lay crossing protection works.
The work is scheduled to be executed in 2018 by DeepOcean’s in-house fleet of dedicated offshore installation and trenching vessels.
“We are delighted to be working once more with NSW and building on our strong delivery record of cable lay and trenching projects in the German sector,” said Pierre Boyde, DeepOcean’s managing director for cable installation & trenching.
