Asso.subsea, a specialized installer in the submarine cable industry, announces the successful completion of the submarine export cable installation and protection for the Kafireas II Windfarm, located in Greece between the southern-most part of Evia island and the mainland.
Asso.subsea, in joint venture with Hellenic Cables, secured this project in February 2021 with TERNA ENERGY, the Greek-leading renewable energy developer.
Mr. Giannis Kyrzidis, Project Manager of Asso.subsea, commented: “This important project marks a significant milestone for Asso.subsea being the first project where Asso acted as EPCI contractor in joint venture with Hellenic Cables. As a one–stop-shop service provider for offshore activities, we have been responsible for the cable loading, transportation, installation and protection of more than 70km of submarine cable up to 150m of water depth, including the execution of geotechnical and geophysical surveys, offering wide expertise and extended ability to execute a complex and timely sensitive project, thanks to a full vertically-integrated solution”
The project was characterized by extremely difficult landings and demanding burial requirements. Asso.subsea utilized the full force of its state-of-art fleet and delivered high-quality services in a timely manner, including the cable laying vessel Atalanti and the trenching support vessels Aethra and Argo, both equipped with the latest version of the AssoJet and AssoTrencher IV burial tools.
Over the past few years, Asso.subsea has moved ahead with major investments in its fleet and equipment, introducing new and upgraded assets, with multiple state-of-the-art vessels and a full range of cable protection equipment, and fundamentally growing its capacity and capabilities in order to face the challenges of offshore wind and interconnectors’ market.
