Starting at the end of August, Deutsche Offshore Consult GmbH (DOC) will commence construction supervision for the inner array cable installation at the North Sea wind farm Trianel Windpark Borkum II (TWB II). DOC's current task of supervising the construction works at TWB II with a focus on the inner array cable installation will start with cable loading and the necessary preparatory work for the cable pull-ins at the substation as well as on board the cable laying vessel Seaway Aimery.
The subsequent cable laying and burial works will then be carried out by Seaway Aimery and Seaway Moxie. The cabling consists of a total of four loops. The inner array cables are magnetised so that they can still be located once they have been laid and buried. Quality assurance and communication with the project office on land are also part of DOC's work package. Thirty-two Senvion 6.2 M152 offshore wind turbines, each with an output of 6.33 MW, will be installed at Trianel Windpark Borkum II (TWB II). The wind farm is located approximately 45 kilometres north of the island of Borkum and will have an output of 200MW. Installation and commissioning of the wind turbines at TWB II is scheduled to be completed by the autumn of 2019.
