The consortium will be responsible for the design, engineering, procurement, manufacturing and testing of around 180 km of High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) export cables for the onshore route and around 320 km for the offshore route for the whole of the Norfolk Offshore Wind Zone and the connection to the national transmission electricity grid. For DEME, the share in the project represents a sizeable contract.

Works for this large-scale offshore wind farm will be executed in 2027 and 2028 and will involve a cable installation vessel, a trailing suction hopper dredger and a fallpipe vessel from the DEME fleet.

“We are very proud that Vattenfall has again chosen to partner DEME and LS Cable & System for this scope and that we will ultimately provide the export cables for the entire Norfolk Offshore Wind Zone” said Philip Scheers, Business Unit Director at DEME Offshore. “DEME is doing its utmost to achieve net zero emissions and it is fantastic to stand shoulder to shoulder with pioneers such as Vattenfall, who shares our vision for a sustainable world, and to work on projects like this that will supply green energy to millions of UK homes.”

Catrin Jung, Head of Offshore Wind at Vattenfall, added that the award is a big milestone for the project which is vital to deliver fossil-free living within a generation.

Located 47 km off the Norfolk coast in the UK, Vattenfall’s Norfolk Offshore Wind Zone will produce clean energy for more than four million households and save about six million tonnes of carbon dioxide.
