The TFKable Group has announced that its production plant in Bydgoszcz (Poland) will provide 220 kV onshore high voltage cable for the Moray East Offshore windfarm, Scotland.
Production will start at the company’s production plant in Bydgoszcz during Q1 2019. A total of 270 drums delivered throughout the first three quarters of 2019. VolkerInfra will carry out the installation works connecting the wind farm to the National Grid at a new substation being built at New Deer in Aberdeenshire.
Pfisterer will supply the 220 kV Connex pluggable cable connections for the offshore substation. The Connex system consists of a 100 % dry termination which pairs with an epoxy socket. From the transition joint bays the Pfisterer MSA one-piece slip on joints will be used along with the corresponding link boxes for the entire 34 km cable route. Arriving at the New Deer onshore substation Pfisterer’s Outdoor Sealing Ends (ESS terminations) will be used to connect to the overhead bus bar.
