NKT has been awarded a turnkey contract of below EUR 250m by TenneT to deliver and install a high-voltage DC (direct current) XLPE power cable system for the BorWin5 project in Northern Germany.
The order comprises the manufacturing of approximately 230 km of 320 kV high-voltage DC on-and offshore power cables and accessories as well as offshore installation by the cable-laying vessel NKT Victoria. The power cables have an expected production start end-2021 with project commissioning in 2025. BorWin5 is TenneT’s fourth offshore wind DC project off the coast of Borkum in north-western Germany. It connects the offshore converter platform BorWin epsilon in the North Sea to the future converter station in Garrel/Ost close to Cloppenburg in Lower Saxony.
