VBMS Wins Borssele Beta Contract

Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. announced today that its subsidiary VBMS in consortium with NKT Cables has been awarded the Borssele Beta contract by TenneT for the installation of two 67-kilometer-long export cables that will connect the Borssele offshore wind farms 3 and 4 to TenneT’s onshore grid in the Netherlands.

In addition, VBMS will install a seven-kilometer-long interconnector cable between the Borssele Alpha and Beta offshore substations. The contract value of Boskalis’ share is approximately EUR 70 million.

In order to execute the project in a safe and efficient manner, Boskalis has taken full advantage of the expertise and capabilities within the group.

To minimize maintenance to the cables during their operational lifetime, Boskalis will pre-sweep and dredge the shallow parts of the route, which will enable VBMS to simultaneously lay and bury the export cables at the required depth. Borssele Alpha will go into service in 2019 followed by Borssele Beta in 2020.

According to Boskalis, this project is closely related to the development of generating renewable energy due to climate change and increasing energy consumption.
