Nexans Norway has won the design, engineering, production and installation contract to supply high-voltage transmission cables both offshore and on land for the Seagreen offshore wind farm under development off Scotland.
The contract is supported by guarantee coverage from GIEK (The Norwegian Export Credit Agency) amounting to around NOK 1.6 billion. The 1,075MW Seagreen project is being developed by SSE Renewables. The seabed-founded wind farm will comprise 114 turbines installed over 27km off the Angus coast. Nexans Norway plans to use its new cable-laying vessel C/V Aurora for the project. GIEK is also guaranteeing parts of the financing of the vessel, which is currently under construction at Norway’s Ulstein Verft.
