South Fork Wind this week marked the completion of the project’s onshore export cable system. Crews have demobilised all equipment from the project’s cable route and completed restoration, including “edge to edge” repaving of the Town roads and reseeding of the grassy shoulders.
The delivery of South Fork Wind’s export cable system was performed by both Long Island’s Haugland Group, which led the installation of the duct bank system, and LS Cable, which installed and jointed the onshore cables with support from Long Island’s Elecnor Hawkeye. Work will conclude this summer on the project’s onshore substation, off Cove Hollow Road.
South Fork Wind is now in its offshore construction phase, first with work to install the project’s 68-nautical mile submarine cable from its landfall below Wainscott Beach, in East Hampton, to the wind farm site roughly 35 miles east of Montauk, N.Y. Cable laying is underway. The project, developed by Ørsted and Eversource, is expected to be operational by the end of 2023.
