About the project

The Anholt Offshore Wind Farm is located in the Kattegatt, sea area between Denmark and Sweden, approximately 20 km off the Danish coast between Djursland and Anholt Island. A total of 111 wind turbines, each generating 3.6 MW (in total 400 MW) of electrical power, are to be placed over an area of 88 km². The operator, DONG Energy, would like to start generating electricity at the Anholt Offshore Wind Farm as early as the end of next year. The generated electrical power will cover the electricity needs of around 400,000 households. In the future, the wind farm will thus be able to cover around 4% of total Danish electricity consumption and make a significant contribution to meeting the country’s climate protection goals. Denmark wants to increase the share of renewable energy in its energy mix to 30% by 2020.

Nexans' solutions

Roughly 160 km of medium voltage 34 kV cables were required to connect the 111 wind turbines with each other and to link them to the offshore transformer station. The cables were manufactured in three different cross sections to meet the different transmission requirements. The cables were produced at the Nexans plant based in Hanover in Germany and delivered second quarter of 2012.
