Deme Offshore has been awarded a EPCI contract for the inter-array cables at the Dogger Bank A and Dogger Bank B wind farms in the UK, the first two phases of the 3.6GW Dogger Bank Wind Farm. The scope includes the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the subsea cables for the combined 2.4 GW wind farm.
Deme Offshore will supply, install and protect 650 km of 66 kV inter-array cables and all related accessories. Production of the cable will start in 2021 and will be installed using Deme’s DP3 cable installation vessel ‘Living Stone’. This vessel has a dual lane system, consisting of two cable highways – one for laying the cable and one where the next cable can be simultaneously prepared and have the cable protection system (CPS) installed. The contract with Deme Offshore is subject to joint venture partners SSE Renewables and Equinor reaching Financial Close on Dogger Bank A and Dogger Bank B, expected in late 2020. Dogger Bank Wind Farm is located more than 130km off the North East coast of England and is currently being developed in three 1.2 GW phases by joint venture partners SSE Renewables and Equinor.
