British offshore wind farm Inch Cape has moved one more inch closer to being installed. Project developer Red Rock Power, owned by Chinese State Development & Investment Corporation (SDIC), nominates Dutch dredging and heavylift operator Boskalis as preferred supplier for a series of transportation and installation taks. Altogether, the contract, if finalized, excluding components is expected to exceed EUR 200 million, reports Boskalis.
The pre-construction agreement is conditional on Inch Cape being among the winners of the coming Contract for Difference (CfD) auction planned for May. If successful, the Dutch company will supply and install 72 jacket foundations, up to 84 inter-array cables as well as transport and install the project's substation. Furthermore, Boskalis will, along with Danish cable manufacturer NKT, install around 170 kilometers of interconnector export cables, the latter announced back in November.
