What offshore work is required?

The offshore construction works will comprise the following:
  1. Fixing of turbine foundations to the seabed
  2. Installation of meteorological equipment
  3. Construction of one or more offshore collector substation(s)
  4. Laying of cables from the offshore substation(s) to the landfall
  5. Laying of inter-turbine cabling to connect the turbines to each other, and to the collector substation(s)
  6. Erection of the wind turbines
In determining the final offshore cable routes and installation methods the project team will take into consideration a number of factors including seabed conditions, the presence of existing infrastructure and marine archaeology, sensitive ecological features, and other uses of the marine area.
