The Norwegian company Statoil is building a new offshore wind farm off the British coast. It is located not far from the previously built Sheringham Shoal Offshore Wind Farm. The new wind farm is called Dudgeon. VBMS was commissioned by Statoil to install two export cables and 67 array cables.
As a subcontractor to VBMS, Visser & Smit Hanab was responsible for the two landfalls where the export cables come ashore.
Visser & Smit Hanab set up operations at the site of the Muckleburgh Collection, a museum for military vehicles and equipment. Visser & Smit Hanab was responsible for preparing the entire site, procuring and assembling the HDPE pipe and drilling and pulling the HDPE pipe through the 1,125-metre-long landfall. VBMS acted as its client, in charge of the offshore work. The smooth and active cooperation between these two parties resulted in the two conduits being installed on schedule and within budget.
