Cables International has been working closely with customers such as Sembcorp Marine Integrated to grow our presence in the renewable energy sector. In July, Sembcorp Marine Integrated awarded us with a contract to supply two topsides for Ørsted Wind Power as part of the UK’s Hornsea 2 Offshore Wind Farm project. The 1.4-gigawatt capacity wind farm will be the world’s biggest when it becomes operational in 2022. Just a few months later, in November, we were awarded another contract to supply three roll-on/rolloff, plug-in ropax ferries for Norway’s Norled AS project. These highly energy-efficient vessels will operate normally on zero-emissions battery power. When required, they can run on combined battery-diesel hybrid backup modes. These projects add to our track record in the North Sea, which includes the Culzean CPP WHP ULQ platforms, Kraken FPSO, and Catcher FPSO.
