Axial supported LS Cables in installing the world’s largest offshore windfarm

Client: LS Cables and Systems

Project: Hornsea Two

Location: Offshore windfarm near Grimsby

In January 2021 our client LS Cable and Systems successfully completed on shore cable installation on the Hornsea Two project, the world’s largest offshore windfarm. The project required supply and installation of 350 kilometres of  high-voltage cables across 39km of land. Since the pre-construction phase commenced in April 2019; and through the entireity of the delivery phase, Axial has supported our South Korean client with planning and project controls support.

Axial established a baseline programme using Primavera P6 software and worked with the ultimate client Orsted to develop an integrated delivery programme.  Touchpoints were developed and controlled through a series of interfacing milestones which were agreed with the through a series of Axial facilitated workshops. Periodic programme updates were provided throughout with accompanying narratives providing comprehensive analysis of movements to the project’s critical path and key milestones. These milestones included site acceptance testing, cable jointing and terminations in support of the project commissioning. We worked closely with LS Cables throughout the project through a mixture of remote and on site working to deliver the required scope.

Hornsea Project Two is located 89 kilometres off the Yorkshire coast in the UK. When fully operational in 2022, it will be capable of supplying electricity to  over 1.3 million homes and will surpass its sister project, Hornsea Project One, as the world’s biggest offshore wind farm. the cables will ultimately carry green energy, which has been generated offshore, through to the connection point with the national grid.

“LS appreciate the professional project support from Axial and will have no hesitation in requesting your services on future projects.”
