In: CablesWindfarms
Hellenic Cables has been awarded its biggest contract to-date, by DEME Offshore for the supply of approximately 650 km 66 kV inter-array cables and accessories for the Dogger Bank A and Dogger Bank B offshore wind farms in the UK.  

Under the contract, Hellenic Cables will design, manufacture, test and supply approx. 650 km of 66 kV cross-linked polyethylene insulated inter-array cables and associated accessories. The cables will be produced at Hellenic Cables’ submarine cables plant in Corinth, Greece. Production of the cables will commence in 2021 and delivery will be a phased roll out in line with the project execution program.

The contract with DEME Offshore is subject to joint venture partners SSE Renewables and Equinor reaching financial close on
Dogger Bank A and Dogger Bank B, expected in late 2020.

DEME Offshore was awarded by Joint venture partners SSE Renewables and Equinor, a contract for engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of the subsea inter-array cables for the combined first two phases of the offshore wind farm.

Mr Alexios Alexiou, CEO of Hellenic Cables, commented: “This is a pivotal moment for our company. Being awarded the largest ever contract for inter-array cables is testament to our world-class manufacturing capabilities, following more than EUR 200 million investments in our Corinth plant. We are honored and thrilled to be part of this flagship project that paves the way to a more sustainable future”.

Bart De Poorter, General Manager DEME Offshore, commented: “We are pleased to have signed the contract with Hellenic Cables for the world’s biggest wind farm. We are confident that with Hellenic Cables’ strong track record and our combined expertise we can efficiently and safely deliver this large-scale inter-array cable project.”

Dogger Bank Wind Farm is a joint venture between SSE Renewables, who is leading the construction of the wind farm, and Equinor, who will operate the project during its lifetime of at least 25 years. In addition to
Dogger Bank A and Dogger Bank B, the two companies are developing the Dogger Bank C project for which it is expected that a financial decision will come in late 2021.

The projects will have a combined capacity of 3.6 GW and are located over 130 km off England’s north-east coast and will be capable of powering up to 4.5 UK million homes each year when complete in 2026. Due to its size and scale, the site is being built in three consecutive phases. Each project is expected to generate around 6 TWh of electricity annually.
