Global Tech wins contract to install submarine array cables

A consortium comprising Norddeutsche Seekabelwerke (NSW) and Global Marine Systems (GMSL) has awarded Global Tech a contract to deliver and install more than 100km of medium-voltage submarine array cables for the Global Tech I offshore wind farm.

The installation work will start in late 2012, with the project is scheduled to be completed in 2013.

The Global Tech I wind farm is located about 138km northwest off the German coastal city of Emden.

The wind farm will consist of 80 wind turbines, each rated at 5MW, and upon completion will supply an expected 445,000 households with renewable energy.
