TenneT has announced a large scale HVDC cable tender for offshore grid connections in the North Sea. The framework agreement secures cable orders for at least ten offshore grid connections in the German and Dutch North Sea for its 2GW program.
TenneT plans to agree a second cooperation with key market partners for a period of up to eight years. This agreement covers the 525 kV subsea cables for laying between the offshore converter platforms in the North Sea to the coast, as well as the underground cables from the coast to the onshore converter stations. TenneT had already published its first large-scale EU tender in the offshore sector in June. This tender focused on the offshore converter platforms and the onshore converter stations. Together, the two tenders offer a holistic and concrete action plan to further accelerate the offshore grid expansion in the North Sea.
