Ecosse extends Wikinger scope
Scottish company to carry out seabed clearance at site of 350MW project
Ecosse Subsea Systems is to carry out seabed clearance for Iberdrola’s 350MW Wikinger offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea.
The Scottish company said the deal is an extension to a contract awarded last year by Prysmian Group for pre-cut seabed trenching at the project site.
Ecosse said when the seabed is prepared, its Scar seabed system will perform first pass and multi-pass trenching in preparation for Prysmian’s installation and burial of 81km of submarine cables.
Ecosse commercial director Keith McDermott said: “Detailed surveys discovered a number of obstacles on the proposed route and we have been contracted by Prysmian Group to carry out seabed clearance and route preparation prior to commencing the trenching work.”
