The contracts exemplify DEME’s integrated solutions approach, encompassing cable installation, landfall and rock placement, dredging, and marine infrastructure works,” said the company.

Additionally, DEME will carry out preparation and supporting works for IJmuiden Ver Alpha, comprising route preparation, surveys, landfalls and rock placement, as well as pre-sweeping and rock placement works for the Nederwiek 1 project.

Also, DEME will deploy a variety of vessels from its fleet, including:

  • cable installation vessels,
  • hopper dredgers,
  • a fallpipe vessel. 

In addition, the project will encompass the beach works and cofferdam structures at the cable landing locations.

The works are scheduled to begin in stages from 2025.
