Harwich, OMM in Dong cable deal

The UK's Harwich Dock Company (HDC) and contractor Offshore Marine Management (OMM) have together landed a long-term deal with developer Dong Energy for cable storage and management services at the Harwich Navyard in Essex, southeast England.

The first project under the agreement – at an as-yet-unnamed UK wind farm – will see OMM take on cable engineering, commissioning, consultancy and general cables services to support the Danish utility's operations and maintenance activities.

In 2011, HDC and OMM teamed up to provide cable storage for the Greater Gabbard offshore wind farm.
