WHAT'S HAPPENING OFFSHORE
In terms of offshore construction, the first main activity will begin in mid-2023, with the start of the installation of the export cables by Prysmian's Leonardo da Vinci. This will come soon after the completion of the remaining landfall horizontal directional drills and related marine works, due to be finished by the end of spring 2023. Also in spring, Sofia's offshore construction team will move into its new base in the Port of Byth, and work is set to start on the establishment of the offshore site, which will include installation of marker buoys on the Dogger Bank site.
