Prysmian succeeds in NNG export cable work offshore Scotland

Prysmian succeeds in NNG export cable work offshore Scotland

Recently, Prysmian has wrapped up installing submarine and land power cables linking the Neart na Gaoithe offshore wind farm to the Scottish mainland power grid. A joint venture of EDF Renewables and ESB owns the project. The Italian contractor accomplished its task, which comprised offshore and onshore lines connecting the location to the mainland grid.

Prysmian installed two HVAC 220 kV three-core extruded export underwater cables with single-wire armouring stretching to Thorntonloch shore in East Lothian. The company also supplied two 220 kV extruded land cable circuits that connect the landfall area to the substation.

"We feel honoured that we have delivered the project meeting the required quality but most of all reaching the heaviest possible health and safety results, with 0 LTI (lost time injury) registered in over 600,000 worked manhours," Massimo Galleta, the project's director, stated.

"Prysmian supervised challenging scopes such as sea-land cable landing, cable laying and burying, cable drawing onto the offshore platform, and cable termination within its scope." Lubna Gemey, Project Manager for the offshore activities, stated that this needed a significant amount of effort to interface with other packages working on the project.

The project is now in the commissioning and testing phase, with it being planned to be put live in the year 2024.

One of Prysmian's issues during the project was how important it was to collaborate with many other firms engaged. Prysmian overcame technical obstacles for the project, including the necessity for horizontal directional drilling for a 600-meter pipe constructed in the sea-land transition area, enabling the cable to move from offshore to land.

Cable Enterprise completed the marine cable laying assignment. Normand Pacific managed the burial effort. Cable Enterprise was also responsible for dragging the cables onto the platform.

The offshore wind farm, located 15.5 km off the Fife coast in the east of Scotland, could generate up to 450 MW of green and renewable energy that could provide clean and affordable power to about 375,000 Scottish homes, helping to meet Scotland's goals to cut CO2 emissions.
