Nexans has received the first order under the frame agreement to manufacture approximately 110 km of high voltage subsea cables to South Fork Wind, a joint venture between Ørsted and Eversource.
 
The 3-phase 138 kV high voltage alternative current (HVAC) subsea export cables will be integrated with two fiber-optic cables and transmit 132 MW of electricity to Long Island, New York, USA. The 132MW South Fork Wind Farm is located 35 miles offshore from Montauk Point, New York and construction will start in 2022. The HVAC cables will be manufactured at Nexans’ newly transformed subsea high voltage plant in Charleston, South Carolina, USA.
 
The Export Cable Framework Agreement, providing the opportunity to supply up to 1,000km of high voltage subsea cables in the U.S. by 2027, was signed in December 2019 between Ørsted Wind Power North America and Nexans.
