Offshore engineering specialist Global Marine Group (GMG) has secured a contract from German company E.ON to install a fibre optic cable at the Rampion offshore wind farm offshore UK.
CWind, part of GMG, will execute the contract utilising cable lay vessel CS Recorder.
Upon completion of the project, the cable will run from the shore to an offshore substation, providing communications link for the wind farm. The work is expected to be completed later this month.
Lee Andrews, managing director for CWind, commented: “We are well placed to support the project, with a comprehensive track record of successful cable installations. In a very tight timeframe, the CWind team has engineered a solution for a complex project that accommodates the existing on site infrastructure. We now look forward to successfully conducting the installation and will naturally embrace our “right first time” ethos throughout the project.”
