Ørsted completes cable pull for Hornsea Two development

Offshore wind developer Ørsted has completed a cable pull on the east coast of England for one of its major developments.

The Danish firm pulled ashore 2.4km of a total 39km of wire, which will transport power generated by the huge 165-turbine Hornsea Two project, around 55 miles off the coast of Yorkshire, to the onshore substation.

A total 165km of cable will be used to connect the site to the National Grid, further than the distance from Newcastle to Leeds.

The Ørsted team at Horseshoe Point in Lincolnshire arranged for the cable laying vessel Ndurance, owned and operated by Dutch-based contractor Boskalis, to position itself on location around 2.5km away from the cable’s connection point.

Hornsea Two will generate 1.4 GW of green energy, enough to power more than 1.3 million UK homes, when it becomes operational in 2022.

Patrick Harnett, Ørsted programme director for the development said: “These recent months have set challenges in our way that no one could have expected. Our teams have worked safely and tirelessly to overcome these and deliver a fantastic result with the commencement of our offshore construction works.

“Thanks to the dedication of our contracted staff, once the cable connection works at Horseshoe Point have been completed next year, the ground will be reinstated and the beach will look exactly as it did before.”

Steve Marshall, Boskalis Project Director for Hornsea Two said: “Boskalis are delighted to be working with Ørsted again on this prestigious project following on from the success of similarly collaborative works carried out on the Hornsea One project.

“Boskalis have a comprehensive and world leading track record in delivering nearshore and landfall operations whilst always maintaining a key focus to eliminate or minimise any environmental and surrounding impact, through the great work of our team and by utilising our in-house equipment we have successfully achieved this.

“The experience of the team has recently been exemplified in the way that the ‘One Team’ philosophy has risen and overcome challenges that would not typically be encountered during these types of works to deliver outstanding results. We look forward to continuing the great working relationship with Ørsted and contributing to the ongoing overall success of this project.”
