Primo Marine awarded contract on NeuConnect project
The NeuConnect interconnector will create the first direct energy link between the United Kingdom and Germany, connecting two of Europe´s largest energy markets. With a total length of 725km, it will become one of the world´s largest interconnector projects.
Primo Marine, as part of the Ove Arup & Partners Limited and Fichtner GmbH & Co. KG Joint Venture, will support marine engineering and marine operations on the project, covering all aspects of the NeuConnect subsea power cable installation, safety and client representation offshore.
This role adds to the contract for offshore permitting works that was awarded to Primo Marine in 2020, and will see Primo Marine’s continued involvement in NeuConnect until project completion in 2028.
We are particularly proud and happy of this appointment, and look forward to contributing to this technically challenging project.
