Boskalis dons Cape 

Royal Boskalis Westminster (Boskalis) has been awarded a pre-construction agreement (PCA) for the Inch Cape offshore wind farm project in the North Sea.

The PCA includes the engineering, supply, transportation and installation of up to 72 pre-piled jacket foundations and up to 84 inter-array cables, in addition to the transportation and installation of the offshore substation. Boskalis will also supply and install two 85 km export cables.  

The contract is subject to a successful bid by Inch Cape Offshore Limited (ICOL), the project’s developer, in the next UK offshore wind auction, which takes place in May 2019.  

The PCA contract is expected to exceed EUR200 million (USD229 million) in value, according to Boskalis. 

The offshore contractor and maritime services provider will deploy its converted semi-submersible heavy lift vessel, Bokalift 1, which has a 3,000-tonne lifting capacity revolving crane, for the project. 

The Inch Cape offshore wind farm will be located in the North Sea, 15 km off the Angus coast, eastern Scotland.  

The project will be completed between 2021 to 2022.
