At 576MW The Gwynt y Môr offshore wind farm will be one of the largest in Europe. When fully operational, energy generation is expected to be equivalent to the average annual needs of around 400,000 homes

The contract requires Reef Subsea Power & Umbilical assist with engineering, project management, ROV and survey operations linked to the subsea installation and burial of all infield array cables for Gwynt y Môr, located 13 kilometres off the North Wales coast in Liverpool Bay.

The wind farm will have an installed capacity of 576MW, and is designed to be ultimately integrated into the UK National Grid in 2014. Reef Subsea Power & Umbilical (RSPU) has been tasked with installing and burying the 161 infield inter array cables. Workscope also covers connection to the two offshore sub-stations.

For the project Reef Subsea Power & Umbilical will provide project management, ROV, survey and engineering services, and will deploy one of its installation and burial spreads, which will be on contract throughout 2013. The vessel and the Project team selected for Gwynt y Môr will be equivalent to those which successfully completed similar achievements over the last few years for Greater Gabbard and other UK wind farms.
