Reinstatement works are expected to continue on the ground until mid-2021.

VolkerInfra has installed a total of 350,000 metres of cable reaching from the wind farm’s landfall point at Horseshoe Point, to North Killingholme.

VolkerInfra senior operations manager Mark Robinson said: “We’re delighted to have reached a significant milestone on this highly strategic project for our client Orsted.

“The team has successfully completed the installation of three 220kV circuits along the 39km onshore cable route for the Hornsea 2 wind farm.

“The route runs from the coastal section at Horseshoe Point in Tetney, to the substation site in North Killingholme, and was delivered ahead of schedule. Well done and thank you to everyone involved.”

Hornsea 2 deputy director Luke Bridgeman added: Our teams have persevered relentlessly throughout this pandemic, for which we are deeply thankful.

“They have maintained a clear focus on collaborative behaviours, ensuring that the works were delivered with the highest standards of safety and within the original project programme.”

Once complete in 2022, Hornsea 2 will host 165 8MW offshore wind turbines.

Orsted senior project lead David Morgan said: “It has been a difficult year to deliver a project of this scale but VolkerInfra has been a great partner to tackle this challenge with.”
