OMPA Supplies Cable Teams for BorWin 1

Offshore Marine People and Academy (OMPA) will be supplying personnel to German grid operator, transpower stromübertragungs gmbh under Offshore Marine Management’s contract to install the HVAC cables connecting the Bard Offshore 1 and BorWin alpha platforms for the BorWin1 project.


BorWin1 is the world’s largest offshore wind farm cluster, located off the coast of Germany. OMM’s role will be to install the two infield HVAC cables between the principle platforms. From the BorWin alpha platform the export cables continue to the Island of Norderney and onward to Diele where power will enter the German grid. Operations will be conducted from a state-of-the-art, multiple support DP2 vessel manned with survey and cable teams supplied by OMP.


OMPA will also supply OMM with two topside teams for the pull in works and to lay and monitor the two (208mm OD) 1.1km HVAC cables along the proposed routes between the platforms at a water depth of approximately 40m. OMM will manage the complete process, from the expansive preparatory works and installation through to the post cable burial survey and final client deliverables.
