Hellenic Cables, the sole supplier of inter-array cables for the Dogger Bank, has awarded VPI with a contract to engineer and deliver cable hang-off systems for the project.
According to VPI, the first batch of cable hang-offs for Dogger Bank A was delivered at the end of Q1 2022 and the systems will be installed along with the subsea power cables from Hellenic Cables.
