In 2004 one of Pelagian’s first projects in offshore wind was the successful trenching of wind farm cables using a Gator trencher on Arklow Bank in the Irish Sea.
Arklow Bank wind farm is located on a shallow sandbank 14km off the East coast of Ireland and is the country’s first offshore wind farm consisting of 7 turbines and generating 25MW of power.
Pelagian provided the offshore expertise and project management to operate the Gator trencher. Gator is a tracked, self propelled shallow water cable trenching system, fitted with a chain cutter, enabling cable burial up to 2m in the shallow sand deposits and which provided a cost effective and comprehensive subsea cable trenching solution.
