Dong Energy Wind Power has contracted Nexans to supply and terminate a total of 139 kilometres of three-phase subsea cable for the first of three construction phases of the Hornsea Project One wind farm, located off the Yorkshire coast, UK.
The 34 kV cables will be used for inter-linking a total of 58 wind turbines and connecting them to the offshore transformer station. This first stage of the wind farm, of which construction began in January, is expected to be operational within approximately three years and to produce 406MW (1.2GW for all three construction stages). The supply and termination of the Nexans cable will begin in spring 2018 and should be completed around a year later.
