Ørsted and PGE Group contracted cable installation service for their Baltica Offshore Wind Farm
The chosen contractor for cable installation service is Boskalis. It will mobilize multiple vessels and burial tools to perform cable laying for Baltica 2, including a cable laying vessel and a construction support vessel. Apart from laying and burial of about 300 km of export cables and about 170 km of array cables the contractor’s scope also includes boulder removal and seabed preparation works for the cable routes.

Established in 1999, ZTT is a leader in the design and manufacture of custom-made marine equipment. In terms of the supply of cables, the company has participated in the construction of over 20 offshore wind farm projects around the world. Hellenic Cables deals with the production of cables, wires, as well as plastic and rubber compounds. Over the last decade, the company has become the largest cable manufacturer in Southeast Europe, exporting to over 50 countries.
