VolkerInfra completes Hornsea 2 cable works

In: Windfarms
VolkerInfra recently completed onshore cable works for Ørsted’s Hornsea 2 offshore wind farm. The company installed a total of 350,000 metres of cable over 39km of Lincolnshire land, reaching from the wind farm’s landfall point at Horseshoe Point, to North Killingholme. Reinstatement works are expected to continue on the ground until mid-2021.

Having been installed over a two-year period, the cables will ultimately carry green energy, which has been generated offshore, up to the connection point to the national grid.

Mark Robinson, VolkerInfra senior operations manager said: “We’re delighted to have reached a significant milestone on this highly strategic project for our client Ørsted. The team has successfully completed the installation of three 220kV circuits along the 39km onshore cable route for the Hornsea two wind farm. The route runs from the coastal section at Horseshoe Point in Tetney, to the substation site in North Killingholme, and was delivered ahead of schedule. Well done and thank you to everyone involved.”

Luke Bridgeman, deputy director for Hornsea Two at Ørsted, said: “Our teams have persevered relentlessly throughout this pandemic, for which we are deeply thankful. They have maintained a clear focus on collaborative behaviours, ensuring that the works were delivered with the highest standards of safety and within the original project programme.”

Hornsea Two will surpass its predecessor Hornsea One and become the world's largest offshore wind farm once complete. It will be capable of generating 1.4 GW of electricity featuringg 165 Siemens Gamesa 8 MW SG 8.0-167 DD turbines
