Paris, February 25, 2014 – Suzlon, one of the world’s leading wind turbine manufacturers, has turned to Nexans to support its major projects in Brazil with complete end to end cable solutions that will ensure effective, efficient and reliable connections for some 150 wind turbine generators (WTGs). The total contract value is worth around €11 million.
In two framework agreements with Suzlon, Nexans is supplying its WINDLINK® LV and MV tower cables, site kits and accessories together with MV inter-array cables and HV export cables that form the connection to local substations.
