Vineyard Wind has announced that Southwire will be a key supplier for the design, manufacturing and installation of the onshore cables for Vineyard Wind 1 offshore wind farm. Southwire’s facility in Huntersville, NC, USA will manufacture the high voltage cable for the onshore portion of the project.
Southwire will manufacture more than 32 miles of high voltage cable. Southwire’s high voltage field services team, working with local labourers, will install the cable with a projected onshore site completion by the first quarter of 2023. The cable will be part of the grid system that will be ready to provide power to households from the 62 GE offshore wind turbines. The turbines themselves are planned to start being installed in the Summer of 2023.
