Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 6/11/2020, Location: Europe

Nexans has been awarded a major contract by SSE Renewables to design, manufacture and install the high voltage (HV) onshore and offshore export cables for the Phase 1 development of the Seagreen offshore wind farm project. Construction on the 1,075 megawatt (MW) project, which is located 27km off the coast of Angus, will start next year. When completed in 2022/23 Seagreen 1 will be Scotland’s largest wind farm and single largest source of renewable energy, providing a significant contribution to Scotland’s net zero ambition and enough clean, renewable energy to power 1 million homes.

Nexans’ factory in Charleston, US will supply the three 65 km offshore export cables. This factory was recently expanded to manufacture HV subsea power cables and is currently the only facility with that capability in North America. The three 20 km onshore export cables for the project will be manufactured at Nexans’ factory in Charleroi, Belgium.

Nexans is committed to working closely with suppliers local to the Seagreen project on subcontract opportunities available, including both the offshore and the land part of the contract.

The export cables for the Seagreen offshore windfarm project will be installed by the Aurora, Nexans’ brand new cable laying vessel (CLV).The Aurora is currently under construction and will be delivered in the second quarter of 2021.
