Fugro secures Gwynt y Môr trenching contract

RWE Innogy has appointed Fugro to undertake cable burial and survey operations for its Gwynt y Môr offshore wind farm in Liverpool Bay off the North Wales coast.

Work on installing the 63 inter-array cables will start this month and will be completed in autumn this year.

To execute the work programme, one of Fugro’s two Q1400 trenching spreads will be mobilised onto the vessel Fugro Saltire, which is also equipped with two FCV 3000 work class ROV systems and a full data acquisition and processing package, providing high quality pre- and post-trenching charting and documentation.

Fugro has also won another similar contract with RWE to undertake cabling operations for a wind farm off the UK’s east coast and work on that scheme will run concurrently with the work at Gwynt y Môr.
