ScottishPower Renewables has chosen Nexans' submarine cables to carry energy onshore from its new 714MW East Anglia ONE offshore windfarm. Nexans will supply and install two 85 km 3-core submarine cables with embedded fibre optics, as well as accompanying accessories, for the wind farm in the North Sea. The contract is worth more than € 180 million.
Nexans will type test, manufacture and then install the high voltage cables and accessories at the 300 km2 site. The turnkey contract includes a pre-installation survey and cable protection by burying. Delivery of the cables will begin in Summer 2018. DeepOcean has been subcontracted by Nexans to perform the transport and installation scope which will comprise all marine installation activities including crossings and cable protection. The new wind farm, due to be finished in 2020, will be made of up 102 wind turbines and the entire project is worth nearly €3 billion.
