Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm Contract for VSMC

Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm Contract for VSMC

 

Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. (Boskalis) announces that VSMC, its strategic cable-laying joint venture with VolkerWessels, has been awarded a contract by Dudgeon Offshore Wind Limited, owned by Norwegian companies Statoil (STO) and Statkraft, for the export and inter-array cabling for the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm. The project has a total contract value of EUR 110 million (Boskalis share EUR 55 million).

VSMC will perform two 1,100-meter horizontal directional drillings at the landfall in 2015, followed by the installation of two 42-kilometer export cables in 2016. The scope of work also includes the design, supply, installation, terminations and testing of 67 infield cables with a total length of approximately 100 kilometers. The Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm is located 32 kilometers off the coast of North Norfolk in the United Kingdom. The 67 wind turbines can generate a total capacity of 400MW.

Boskalis' strategy is aimed at benefitting from key macro-economic factors which drive worldwide demand in our markets: expansion of the global economy, increase in energy consumption, global population growth and the challenges that go hand in hand with climate change. This project is closely related to the development of generating renewable energy due to climate change and increasing energy consumption.
