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.”
