The initial contract was awarded in 2017, covering the design and supply of 248 cable protection systems for the inner array grid submarine cables. The extension brings 124 additional CPS to the project, totaling 372 CPS, making it the largest delivery to a single project by Seaproof. 

Henrik Bang-Andreasen, Founder and CEO at Seaproof Solutions said: “We are honoured that Ørsted has chosen Seaproof Solutions Cable Protection Systems. Supporting Ørsted in this project, with building our CPS in the UK, is an important step for Seaproof Solutions in supporting UK Offshore Wind and development of UK supply line.”

Offshore construction recently kicked off at Hornsea Project One with the installation of monopile foundations. The wind farm is located 120km off the Yorkshire coast and will consist of 174 turbines. It is poised to be the world's largest offshore wind farm with a capacity of 1.2GW.

Ørsted (formerly DONG Energy) is one of the world’s leading offshore wind farm developers. The UK is its largest market and the company's project portfolio includes two operational wind farms off the east coast; Westermost Rough and Lincs

Another of the company's projects, Race Bank, is nearing the end of construction and will be officially opened later this year. Hornsea Project One and Two will follow, and combined will generate enough clean electricity for well over 2.3 million UK homes.
