Nexans announced that the installation of all the subsea cables and land cables are now finished on the
Seagreen offshore wind farm off the coast of Scotland.

Nexans has supplied and installed three 65 km offshore export cables and three 20 km onshore export cables. Works are now underway to protect the cables on the seabed against external damage.

Seagreen Offshore Windfarm is a joint venture owned by SSE Renewables and Total Energies. The wind farm is located in the outer Firth of Forth and Firth of Tay region of the North Sea, approximately 17.5 nautical miles East-southeast of the Port of Montrose, where the project Marine Coordination Centre (MCC) is located for both construction and O&M.

It will consist of 114 Vestas
V164-10.0 MW turbines, the first of which was installed in December 2021. At 1.1 GW, it is one of Scotland’s largest renewable energy projects. The wind farm is expected to be capable of generating around 5,000 GWh of renewable energy annually, enough electricity to power more than 1.6 million UK homes.  

SSE Renewables is leading the development and construction of the Seagreen project and will operate the project on completion for its expected 25-year lifetime.
