The first stage of the NordLink project enabling the exchange of German and Norwegian renewable energies successfully started on August 1st. The first meters of Nexans’ manufactured submarine HVDC (high voltage direct current) cable were installed by the laying vessel C/S Nexans Skagerrak in Vollesfjorden, Norway.“The beginning of the cable installation marks an important milestone in the project. Thanks to extensive and complementary knowledge of Nexans expets as well as good cooperation with subcontractors and the client, everything is going according to the plan”, says Danne Petterson, Site Manager at Nexans.

First ever power interconnector between Norway and Germany is Nexans’ largest subsea power cable contract to date in terms of length and value. In the framework of this 0.5Bn Euros worth contract, Nexans will design, manufacture and install 525 kV cable systems; with a total length of more than 700 kmThe project commissioning is scheduled for 2019.

During the next ten days, a total of 124 km of subsea cables will be laid from Norway towards the Danish sector of the North Sea. The cables will be laid by one of the worlds largest purpose-built cable laying vessels, the C/S Nexans Skagerrak, and protected on the seabed by trenching with dual 1 Megawatt Nexans Capjet systems placed on board of the offshore construction vessel Polar King.

The 1400 MW NordLink project, a collaboration between Statnett, TenneT and the German promotional bank KfW, will connect the Norwegian and German electricity markets to exchange clean energy.
