Cable laying vessels Isaac Newton and Connector will transport and install the cables courtesy Jan de NulJan De Nul Group and Ørsted have signed the export cable contract for the Hornsea 3 offshore wind farm in the UK. Jan De Nul Group will be responsible for the seabed preparation, transport, installation and protection of 350 km of DC export cables connecting the wind farm to the UK electricity grid.
 
The 2.9GW Hornsea 3 offshore wind farm is located 160 km off the Yorkshire coast in the UK. The two DC export cables will have a combined length of 350 km and connect the wind farm to the national electricity grid. For the installation and protection of the DC export cables, the company is going to deploy several vessels. Cable-laying vessels Isaac Newton and Connector will transport and install the cables, and to protect the cables a variety of burial solutions will be used including the rock-installation vessel Simon Stevin which will install up to 150,000 tonnes of rock to protect the cables. The works will start in 2025 and are expected to be completed early 2027.
