Subsea 7 has been awarded a contract by Germany’s innogy for the Kaskasi offshore wind farm project, located in the German sector of the North Sea.
The work scope includes the transport and installation of the offshore substation foundation, 38 wind turbine monopile foundations and 52km of inner array grid cables.
Offshore installation is scheduled for 2021 and 2022 using Seaway 7’s heavy lift, cable lay and support vessels.
Steph McNeill, EVP Renewables at Subsea 7, said: “We are pleased to continue our partnership with innogy on the Kaskasi II project, after having collaborated on other projects such as Nordsee One and Triton Knoll. It will benefit from being managed as an integrated foundation and cable installation project leveraging the available capabilities within Seaway 7, and will use an innovative vibratory hammer installation approach to minimize the noise levels during offshore installation of the monopiles.”
Subsea 7 defined the contract as sizeable, which puts its value between $50m and $150m.
