Bureau Veritas and Nexans have signed a partnership agreement to reduce risk and promote best practices for deliveries of high voltage power cables used for connecting offshore wind farms to onshore grids.

Reliability of high voltage power cables end-to-end solutions, including installation, becomes an essential enabler for the current and the next generation of cables required to capture energy in deeper water. Bureau Veritas and Nexans, will partner to address this challenge and build trust for all stakeholders.

This partnership builds on Bureau Veritas’s maritime expertise and extensive experience in risk management to help the offshore wind sector reduce operational risk.

Nexans provides high voltage cables to transfer the energy generated by offshore wind farms. Bureau Veritas can offer its assurance on Nexans end-to-end Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation (EPCI) operational model.

By creating standards and verifying all criteria are met, we can help Nexans build further trust. Our marine expertise and experience in risk management and subsea to surface connections combined with state-of-the-art software tools will make this collaboration a success.”
