Royal Boskalis Westminster has been awarded an export cable installation contract for the Ostwind 2 offshore grid connection. The contract was awarded by 50Hertz and carries a value for Boskalis in excess of € 250 million.
The contract scope comprises design and installation of approximately 270 kilometer of export cable that will connect the planned Arcadis Ost 1 and Baltic Eagle offshore wind farms to the onshore substation in Lubmin, Germany. The project is expected to commence in 2019 with a planned completion late 2022. Boskalis will execute this contract in consortium with its partner NKT that will supply the high-voltage cable system. For this project Boskalis will deliver an integrated solution of in-house services including supporting UXO survey, geotechnical and geophysical surveys (through Boskalis subsidiary Gardline), seabed preparation works, pre-lay run, transport and installation of the 220kV export cables and seabed reinstatement.
