As part of a new five-year framework agreement, Nexans has been awarded a contract by Ørsted to supply and install three-phase 66 kV copper cables with two cross-sections for the Borssele 1 and 2 offshore wind farms.
They will be used for internal cabling of the wind farms. In addition to the inter-array cables, Nexans is also providing the relevant fittings and accessories for the project, including T-connectors for the 66 kV cables. The array cables for Borssele 1 and 2 will be produced at the Nexans Germany plant in Hanover for delivery in 2019. After they have been laid in place on the seabed, Nexans Subsea and Land Systems will complete connection to the turbine bases in 2020. Borssele 1 and 2 are located around 23 kilometres off the Dutch coast in 14 to 36 meters of water. Together, the two wind farms will have a total of 94 wind turbines generating 752MW.
