Nexans to connect Orkney Islands to Scottish MainlandNexans has announced that it has been selected by SSEN Transmission to supply and install the high-voltage cables that will provide a transmission link from Orkney to Dounreay in the Scottish Highlands.
 
A capacity reservation agreement has been signed between both parties and Nexans has committed to reserve manufacturing and installation capacity for a contract to be signed in 2024. Existing and planned renewable energy projects on the islands will generate more electricity than can be consumed or exported with the existing grid infrastructure. With this increased generation capacity due to come online in the coming years, connecting Orkney to the Scottish transmission network has become a necessity to be able to export this renewable electricity.
