Herbosch-Kiere was awarded a charter contract for the London Array wind farm project by Global Marine (GMSL). Our contract was for the installation of 33 kV transmission cables between the turbines and the substations, using our multifunctional vessel ATLANTIS. The project started in September 2011 when we mobilised ATLANTIS to Sheerness.
For the cable installation works, we had to upgrade ATLANTIS to a DP1-certified positioning system. For this particular project, the deck was also adapted by adding a complete cable lay spread.
