WIND has been awarded a cable storage contract for a major European offshore wind farm. The project is already underway and the first 1,050 tonnes of cable has arrived at WIND’s storage facilities in Velsen, the Netherlands at the beginning of July 2018.
This long-term storage contract will continue in Q4 2018 when a second 2,000 tonne shipment of cable will arrive at the yard.
“This is a valued long-term client of ours. In fact, all their export cables are stored by us,” says WIND’s Commercial director Erik Thomas. “We were chosen once again for our reliable service and short mobilisation times – all to the highest standards of safety.”
To complete this storage contract – for six different types of export cable – WIND is investing in two new 1,200 tonne cable carousels. Moreover, in carrying out the load-out operations, the company is providing an all-inclusive service that also includes documentation, supply of equipment and cable handling personnel, management and engineering, and load-out operations.
