A leading provider of cable installation, repair and trenching services to the offshore renewables, utilities and oil & gas markets, will be working with Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) on their Pentland Firth East power cable installation project.

The new 35km, 33kV power cable will connect mainland Scotland to Hoy, the second largest of the Orkney Isles, replacing one of two existing cables serving the islands, which has been in operation for more than 30 years.

Initial works will be completed before the end of the year and include route survey, data collection and studies which will form part of the marine licence application for the cable installation. Following on from the preparatory works, Global Offshore anticipates cable installation utilising the Global Symphony will be undertaken in early spring next year.

Mike Daniel, Managing Director of Global Offshore said, “We’re pleased to be extending our working relationship with SSEN for this prestigious installation project, which is a critical piece of the overall power infrastructure network in Scotland. From our base in Aberdeen, our experienced project engineers and vessel crews will be working closely with the team at SSEN to seamlessly execute yet another vital project.”
