Global Marine Group, Ørsted enter cable repair agreement
Global Marine Group (GMG), supported by business units Global Marine, Global Offshore, and CWind, has signed a framework agreement for cable repair with offshore wind farm developer and operator Ørsted.
The framework becomes a part of the Atlantic Cable Maintenance Agreement (ACMA) which is delivered by GMG alongside zone partner Orange Marine. Should the dedicated ACMA vessel, CS Sovereign (pictured), be unavailable due to other commitments within the zone, the agreement extends Ørsted’s access to other assets in the GMG fleet including Global Symphony, ASV Pioneer, and crew transfer vessels (CTVs) for ancillary services.
The agreement covers most of Ørsted’s UK offshore wind farm portfolio, including almost 900 kilometres of subsea array cable.
