AMS Trenchless, based in Scunthorpe, will undertake specialist works at the landfall site at Weybourne, North Norfolk where the offshore cables meet the onshore cables.

Using Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) - a method of installing ducting, pipes and cables beneath existing infrastructure without disruption - AMS Trenchless will install underground cable ducts that allow export cables to be pulled to land from a jack-up barge without using trenches or disrupting the existing sea defences.

This contract builds on the existing relationship between the east-coast firm and Ørsted, the world’s largest offshore wind developer, following successful works for both Hornsea 1 and Hornsea 2 offshore windfarms.

Hornsea 3 will consist of up to 231 offshore wind turbines, located approximately 120 km off the Norfolk coast and 160 km off the Yorkshire coast. With a capacity of around 2,85GW, Hornsea 3 will be capable of producing enough low-cost, clean, renewable electricity to power over 3 million UK homes. The project is currently working towards taking a Final Investment Decision.

Luke Bridgman, Hornsea 3 Senior Project Director, said: “After successful collaborations with AMS Trenchless on the Hornsea 1 and Hornsea 2 projects, we look forward to AMS utilizing their specialist expertise and understanding of gigawatt-scale projects to deliver further great work on Hornsea 3. Orsted and our key supply chain partners continue to engage with local suppliers to deliver this ground-breaking project, with this announcement today further testament to our commitment to support the further growth of the UK supply chain.”

Matt Waterson, AMS Trenchless Operations Director, added: “AMS are delighted to have been awarded the cable landing package for Hornsea 3. AMS have a long-standing relationship with Ørsted, having previously completed directional drilling works to land offshore cables on both Hornsea 1 and Hornsea 2 projects. We would like to thank Ørsted for the award and very much looking forward to working together again on Hornsea 3.”
