Nexans has signed a contract with Danish utility Energinet.dk to deliver and install the power export cable for Dong Energy's Horns Rev 2 offshore wind farm on the west coast of Denmark.

This turnkey contract, worth around € 30 million includes the supply of 42 km of AC XLPE 170 kV 3-core power cable including a fibre-optic element, transport, laying and termination. When the cable is installed, in autumn 2008, it will become the world's longest XLPE submarine cable at this voltage. The Horns Rev 2 project will provide a total wind farm capacity of over 215MW and cover an area of some 35 km2. The project is situated around 23 km north west of Horns Rev 1. The 170 kV XLPE cable for Horns Rev 2 will be manufactured by Nexans' specialist submarine power cable factory in Halden, Norway. The wind farm will be commissioned in May 2009.
