DEME secures contract to install subsea cables in UK waters

Belgian marine services company DEME has won a contract to design, manufacture and install 360 kilometres of subsea cable for a new offshore wind farm off the UK coast, the company announced on Wednesday.

DEME will work in a consortium with South Korean company LS Cable & System. The cable will be used to connect the Norfolk Boreas wind farm, to be built by the Vattenfall energy group, to the mainland. The wind turbines will be located 47 km off the coast of Norfolk.

The contract, which includes the design, engineering, procurement, fabrication and testing of around 360 kilometres of high-voltage and fibre-optic cables, is worth between between 50 and 150 million euros for DEME. The consortium has also been selected as preferred bidder for Vattenfall's other projects in the Norlfolk area.
