VBMS completes Ormonde repair
Cable-lay barge Stemat 82 finishes wire switch at 150MW UK project
Offshore specialist VBMS has completed repairs to the export cable at Vattenfall's 150MW Ormonde wind farm in the Irish Sea.
VBMS deployed cable-lay barge Stemat 82 to carry out the work, which involved replacing a segment of export cable located 20km offshore.
The Dutch outfit worked with UK high-voltage specialists EDS to install a universal subsea joint to connect the replacement and existing cables.
The Stemat 82 was also used to replace two lengths of array cable in the outer Thames Estuary, VBMS said.
