The Riffgat OWF export cable-lay project was already re-started in March with a speedy installation of cable section 3.

Using a sleeve joint, the cable-end of section 3 was connected to the cable-end of section 4 which had already been installed during last year's cable-lay operation.

The installation process was successfully performed within the scheduled time period and to the complete satisfaction of all parties involved. After last year's installation of 20 km of cable the export cable lay project for Riffgat OWF is now in its final stage.  

The parties involved are TenneT as principal and nkt cables as contractor for the entire project handling. Bohlen & Doyen were contracted by nkt for cable-lay operations as well as DOC for consulting services and on-site offshore repping. The Riffgat export cable lay project has been running since 2011 already while operation stage has been kicked-off in spring 2012.
