OF OFFSHORE CABLES
Nexans cables boost Germany’s Energy Turnaround in offshore wind farms.
About the project
Wind energy is a vital element in Germany’s ongoing Energy Turnaround (Energiewende). The wind farms, which lie around 45 km off the coast - just off the islands of Norderney and Juist, will have a capacity of 582 MW - enough to power around 600,000 German homes. Total investment for the two projects stands at around €2.2 billion with construction commencing in Spring 2015.
Ørsted (previously DONG Energy) is set to increase its offshore wind power capacity in Germany after signing a contract with Nexans for the delivery and installation of 140 km of 34 kV cables. The inter-array cables will link individual turbines at the Gode Wind 1 and 2 wind farms and connect them to an offshore transformer platform, off the Lower Saxony coast in north-east Germany.
