Nexans will supply cables to help Denmark move overhead lines underground
Paris, June 13, 2016 - Energinet.dk, the Danish Transmission System Operator (TSO), has signed a framework agreement with Nexans for the delivery of around 500 km of high voltage (HV) cables. The cables will be used for a series of 170 kV projects from 2017 to reinforce the grid and meet the growing demand for energy in the region.
The contract, worth more than €20 million, will see Nexans supply and install cables with a cross section of between 800 and 2000 mm2. The cables will have a solid aluminium conductor and an aluminium wire screen.
Energinet.dk will use the cables all over Denmark in different future cabling projects.
