Statoil has awarded Nexans the contract, worth € 10.2 million, to supply static and dynamic cabling and associated accessories for the Hywind Scotland Pilot Park wind farm.
The offshore cable systems will be tested, sealed off, prepared for pull-in and delivered in individual lengths ready for installation. The cables will be tested and manufactured at Nexans’ facility in Halden, Norway, before completing delivery by the end of 2017. The pilot 30MW floating farm will be made up of five wind turbine generators connected through an inter-array cable network before feeding into a single export cable carrying energy back to land in Peterhead, Scotland.
