NKT hired for Hornsea work

NKT has been awarded a contract by Ørsted of over EUR 145m to supply more than 190km of 220kV high-voltage AC XLPE offshore export cable system for the Hornsea Project Two offshore wind farm in the UK.

The cable system, not comprising installation, delivered by NKT for
Hornsea Project Two will comprise three far-shore cables, constituting approximately 50% of the project. The far-shore cables will connect the windfarm to the reactive power compensation platform bringing the power towards land.

NKT President and CEO Michael Hedegaard Lyng says: "This cable contract for Hornsea 2 not only emphasizes that we provide leading and proven technology. It also states that our long-time customers such as Ørsted value our expertise, knowhow and continued dialogue to find the optimum solution for both parties.

"The offshore wind market continues to hold attractive prospects for us in the coming years, and our ability to offer turnkey solutions from cable design to installation and service is a prerequisite to stay in the forefront of customer demands."


The export cables for
Hornsea Project Two will be manufactured in Karlskrona, Sweden, with production start-up in the autumn 2018.

Hornsea Project Two, which is expected to be fully commissioned in 2022, will be located approx. 89 km off the Yorkshire coast, close to the Hornsea Project One wind farm, where NKT has delivered the entire cable system. The wind farm will be the world’s largest with a capacity of 1.4 GW providing green electricity to well over 1.3 million households.
