This week, Van Oord successfully completed cable installation work for the Borkum Riffgrund 2 project in the German North Sea.
In 2016, Ørsted contracted Van Oord to transport, install and bury the infield cables for the offshore wind farm. Cable-laying vessel Nexus was deployed to install the infield cables, including interlink cables to the Borkum Riffgrund 1 Offshore Substation.
The wind farm is located 45 kilometres off the coast of Lower Saxony, Germany. It consists of 56 wind turbines with a total capacity of 450MW.
Once completed in 2019, it will deliver green energy to 460,000 households.
