CTC announces contract award for HVDC cabling project

CTC Marine Projects has announced a multi-million-pound contract award for Dolwin 1, a high-voltage cabling project off the German coast linking offshore wind projects to the grid.

The workscope, for client EMAS AMC, will include the trenching of 62.34km of bundled HVDC power cable from a 14m water depth and trenching of a power cable from Dolwin Alpha West Platform to Borkum West II Platform.

CTC says it will mobilise its new integrated trenching spread for this project, consisting of the converted Northern Wave vessel, equipped with T2 trencher upgraded to 3m jetting capability and a deck-fed system. It will also be supported by CTC’s 1.5MW jet trencher, PT-1.
