Cable route design for Burbo Bank Extension OWF

Jan De Nul Group

Design criteria

To support the design and installation of the export cable route and inter-array cables, ABPmer provided a range of metocean design and operational criteria for Burbo Bank Extension Offshore Wind Farm.

Using SEASTATES hindcast data and survey bathymetry data, we developed local high-resolution hydrodynamic and wave models to provide the long term databases required for robust statistical analysis of metocean conditions.

In addition to standard metocean design criteria, we provided orbital wave velocities near the seabed to support the design of concrete mattresses for the cable crossings, and breaking wave conditions at the surface under ‘normal’ and ‘extreme’ conditions to support fatigue analysis.

Our experience in this region enabled us to develop a holistic technical approach and deliver a comprehensive study of the metocean conditions for detailed design.
