Cable Installation

  • Client: Gemini Offshore Windfarm
  • Region: 85 km north of Groningen, The Netherlands
  • Location: The North Sea
  • Industry: Wind Power

Project Overview

The Gemini Offshore Wind Farm required export cables to be installed under two existing submarine cables.

Due to strong currents and very shallow water depths, WaveWalker 1 was required to carry out the horizontal drilling operations for the two cable ducts, separated by 25m.

The jack-up used its walking ability to move precisely and unscathed without interruption between locations and the existing cables.

The central moonpool was covered and a directional drilling unit with a steering unit with a gyro compass, working to tolerances of millimetres, was installed for the horizontal drilling operations.
