Subsea 7 has been awarded what it defines as a “sizeable” contract for work on the Hornsea Two windfarm off the coast of the UK.
The development consists of 165 turbines, around 55miles off the Yorkshire coast, and is due to become operational in 2022.
Subsea 7 did not disclose the value of the deal, but said it was between £40.1m – £120.4m and that it follows work it carried out earlier this year on the neighbouring Hornsea One project.
The firm has been hired to install the entire array grid cable system at the project, including more than 260miles of submarine cables.
It will also undertake surveying, boulder clearance and trenching activities in preparation.
Hornsea Two, from Danish developer Orsted, will generate enough power for more than 1.3million homes.
Subsea 7’s project engineering will begin immediately, with offshore activities to start in 2021.
Steph McNeill, senior vice president for Renewables and Heavy Lifting, said: “We look forward to continuing our collaborative relationship with Orsted to install the entire inner array grid cable system on the Hornsea Two offshore wind farm project.
“This award follows on from our reliable performance and successful completion of the installation activities for the Hornsea One offshore wind farm project earlier this year.”
