Ørsted awarded a 20-year framework agreement to Dutch subsea cable logistics specialist WIND for the storage and onshore handling of all its array cables and accessories for current and future European offshore wind farms at WIND’s yard in Velsen.
For this purpose, WIND is planning to further expand its warehouse capacity from where logistics and repairs will also be handled. WIND already handled the storage of Ørsted’s export cables since 2015.
WIND Managing Director Tom Nooij: “The trust that Ørsted is showing in us by combining its storage of subsea cables for all its European windfarms into one efficient yard is greatly appreciated. On a more general note, this development contributes further to the centralisation of cable related services in the European offshore renewables market and will help the offshore wind industry achieve a decrease of repair and maintenance costs.” Bron: WIND.nl
