CHARTER - Atlantis - Offshore

Offshore cable installation with the ATLANTIS

Herbosch-Kiere was awarded a charter contract on the London Array Windfarm project by the company Global Marine (GMSL). Our contract was for the installation of 33kv transmission cables between the turbines and the substations, using our multi purpose pontoon barge ATLANTIS. The 4 month project began for Herbosch-Kiere in September 2011 when the ATLANTIS vessel sailed to Sheerness. The London Array Windfarm (50% Dong Energy, 30% Eon and 20% Masdar) is a large offshore windfarm in the UK, 20km off the Kent Coast.

For the cable installations works, we were required to upgrade the ATLANTIS with a DP1certified computer system and the deck was also adapted to hold offshore accommodation containers for GMSL's 37 staff.
