Nexans has announced the execution of a contract for phase one of the Empire Wind Project being developed by a 50-50 partnership between Equinor and bp.
This signature follows the Preferred Supplier Agreement signed in 2021 which prompted several months of collaborative work to negotiate a turnkey contract, covering the design and manufacturing, as well as the laying and protection of export cables for the project. The Empire Wind lease area for the first phase of the overall 2.1GW project is located about 20 miles (33km) south of Long Island and east of the Rockaways. Nexans will install the export cables over 93 miles (150km) from the offshore substation for Empire Wind 1 to landfall at South Brooklyn Marine Terminal.
