VSMC completes works at London Array

VSMC client London Array Limited has instructed the company to demobilize following completion of the last remaining part of the project, the shallow water trenching programme. VSMC started working at the wind farm site in 2009.

For VSMC, the London Array project consisted of the installation and burial of four export cables and the installation, burial and termination of 178 infield cables. VSMC set an impressive record by completing the installation and burial of 216 km of export cables in 12 months and the installation and testing of 202 km of infield cables in just nine months.

VSMC were also contracted to trench 177 km of infield cables on a very challenging work site with strong currents and areas that fall dry. Managed from the VSMC site office in Ramsgate, the project required innovative techniques and unconventional methods of trenching.

CEO Arno van Poppel: “The success of this project was down to the dedication and commitment of the project team members, all of whom worked hard to ensure that the project was completed safely and to a very high standard.”
