Subocean wins £23m windfarm contract

Aberdeen-based Subocean has won a £27 million contract to install cabling to connect the Thanet wind-farm development off the northeast coast of Kent with the shore.

The company will install two 23.5 km export power cables and 100 infield array power cables under the seabed.

Subocean said the cable installation offshore work will start in the second quarter of 2009 using a newly chartered and mobilised cable lay barge.

When completed electricity will be transferred from the windfarm to shore via the two export cables, which will be routed to a landfall point in Pegwell Bay. All the power cables shall be buried to provide adequate protection hostile seabed conditions.
