Ørsted has selected VolkerFitzpatrick to deliver the installation of onshore cables for the Hornsea 3 offshore wind farm.

VolkerStevin will support VolkerFitzpatrick in the delivery of this project.

The contract involves installation of 240km of onshore cables linking the offshore wind farm from the landfall at Weybourne in Norfolk to the Norwich Main National Grid Substation.

This contract is subject to Ørsted taking a final investment decision on Hornsea 3.

It will include the civil works related to the cable installation and National Grid connection, the cable installation as well as restoration of land after the installation of the HVDC cables, including tree and hedgerow planting.

With a capacity of 2.8GW, Hornsea 3 will generate clean, renewable electricity to power around 3.2 million homes in the UK.

Hornsea 3 will be situated 160km from the Yorkshire coast.

Once completely online, Ørsted’s Hornsea zone, consisting of Hornsea 1, 2 and 3, will have a total capacity of over 5GW.

It is expected to become the largest offshore wind zone in world, powering above five million UK homes.

Hornsea 3 senior project director Luke Bridgman said: “As well as providing low-cost clean energy at scale, Hornsea 3 is also supporting the further development of the UK supply chain. Through our partnerships with leading industry expertise, such as VolkerFitzpatrick, we will be looking to share opportunities with UK suppliers and contractors to work on this ground-breaking project.”
