Project info
Production commenced at the Group’s specialist HV production plant in Bydgoszcz during Q1 2019. This large-scale undertaking will require highly coordinated programme of delivery to support VolkerInfra’s best in class installation sequence. All of the cable will be produced and tested on site in Bydgoszcz and delivered to the Scottish coast through an innovative drum rotation system which will see a total of 270 drums delivered throughout 2019. VolkerInfra will carry out the installation works connecting the wind farm to the National Grid at New Deer substation in Aberdeenshire.
ʺThe effects of our cooperation have already been appreciated, nevertheless I am pleased that the next demanding undertaking is ahead of us. We are especially confident in the ability of our own work results, i.e. the supply of high-quality cables at the Bydgoszcz production plant and our outstanding competence in engineering”, underlines Wojtek Skoczylas, Sales Director at TFKable Group.
