Nexans has won a contract with Ørsted and Eversource to install and protect the export cable link for the Revolution Wind Farm. The project will connect the wind farm to the onshore grid.
This will be Nexans’ first cable installation project in the U.S. as part of the frame agreement with Ørsted-Eversource. The Export Cable Framework Agreement, providing the opportunity to supply up to 1,000km of high voltage subsea cables in the USA by 2027, was signed in December 2019 between Orsted Wind Power North America and Nexans.
Located more than 15 miles south of the Rhode Island coast and 32 miles southeast of the Connecticut coast, the 704 MW Revolution Wind Farm will address both states’ energy needs. Construction will start in 2023 and it is expected to be fully operational in 2025. The Nexans Aurora will be used for the installation.
