  • Rampion offshore wind farm | export cable installation

    In December 2016, VBMS completed the installation of two 16 kilometre-long 150kV HVAC cables for the Rampion offshore wind farm situated off the coast of Worthing, UK. To overcome some environmental challenges in this very shallow water, VBMS had to extend the pre-installed landfall HDD’s with duct extensions of approx. 480 metres each. VBMS utilised Boskalis’ backhoe dredger Manu Pekka to dredge the trenches before installing the duct extensions. In addition, Boskalis dredged three flotation pits per cable routing to allow CLV Stemat Spirit to reach the location of the end of the ducts. Following the cable pull-in CLV Stemat Spirit jumped from pit to pit during high tides while laying the cable until it reached deeper water where it could safely remain afloat and resume the remaining cabl...

    In October 2014, VBMS installed the export cable for the Eneco Luchterduinen Offshore Windfarm, executed by the CLV Ndurance and the Trenchformer. This unique multi-purpose trencher, developed and built by VBMS and Boskalis, used its jetting sword to bury the cable 3 metres deep near shore. See how we executed the shore end landing and the first 3 kilometres of simultaneous laying and burying of the export cable, captured in a 5-minute timelapse video.

  • Subsea Cable Protection System for Offshore Wind Farms

    PEFLEX is a cable protection system, manufactured by Pipeline Engineering, used to protect freespan array and export cables on offshore wind farms. Using PEFLEX allows diver-less and ROV-less installation. The PEFLEX design combines a series of interlocking polyurethane vertebrae half sections interspersed with elastomeric sleeves. PEFLEX is positioned at the subsea entry of cables on J-Tube or J-Tubeless connections. Once attached, PEFLEX limits the bending of cables by locking when the minimum bend radius is reached".

    A short video to show the export cable pull in at the Burbo Bank Offshore Windfarm extension. There were some considerable engineering challenges to enable the team to get the cable installed safely. The cable was floated ashore on pillow floats to a small jack up barge then pulled through the tidal and connected to a winch for the final 760 metre pull through a HDD that had been installed 12 months ago. A great achievement for all involved!

  • Submarine Cable Installation: Tools for Power, Telecom, and Seismic Cables (MakaiLay)

    Submarine cable installations in the telecom, power and seismic industries have similarities and differences. But there is a common thread in every submarine cable lay: you need accurate real-time control over the position and bottom tension of your cable as it lands on the seabed. This video discusses a proven method for achieving this control being used by over 75% of the telecom cable ships in the world. A tool called MakaiLay allows operators to precisely control the two most important variables in a cable installation: cable POSITION and TENSION. This software calculates all forces on the cable and can automatically adjust cable payout speed and vessel navigation to keep tension within acceptable limits, safely and accurately installing the cable on the seabed. Over the last 15 year...

Over the last 15 years, MakaiLay has become the #1 subsea cable installation package in the world, used by over 3/4 of the world's submarine cable ships to successfully install well over 400,000 kilometers of submarine cable. The benefits of this tool are shared by cable installers, owners, and insurers. Installers, report increased speed, quality, and profitability of cable lays, with decreased cable repairs and potential lawsuits. Owners and insurers who require MakaiLay to be used during installation have the confidence that their cable asset will have the longest possible useful life because it was installed with the world's most trusted and thoroughly validated submarine cable installation tool.
