Ocean Installer wins German offshore wind contract

Norway’s Ocean Installer has been awarded an offshore wind contract with Norddeutsche Seekabelwerke for work in German waters in the southern sector of the North Sea.

Ocean Installer will use construction support vessel Normand Vision for the project, which includes recovery of two pre-laid HVAC export power cables in the 500 m zone of the Gode Wind 1 offshore sub-station, relay of the cable, installation of the centralizer cable protection system and pull-in to the transformer platform.

The project will be the first for Normand Vision within the renewable energy field.

“We are very pleased that we are able to secure a very interesting project within the offshore renewables wind market and demonstrate our capabilities on such a project,” commented Steinar Riise, CEO of Ocean Installer.
