WIND has signed a framework agreement with TenneT for the provision of cable transfers and cable storage for offshore spare export cables. The contract scope includes the supply of cable storage equipment, execution of cable transfers and the management and storage of spare export cables.

The first cable for
Hollandse Kust Noord will arrive with WIND before the end of Q2 this year. For the foreseeable future, further spare cables will be stored at WIND’s cable storage and repair yard in Velsen Noord, Netherlands.

WIND CEO, Tom Nooij said: “This framework agreement cements our partnership with TenneT for the coming years. Their trust allows us to guarantee the flexibility in cable requirements they need to continue vastly developing the offshore wind farm landscape in Europe.”

Earlier this month, the company announced the opening of its new office Taichung. The company has been active in Taiwan since October 2020, when it first established a 2,000 m2 yard for storing offshore cables in the Taichung port area. The new operational office aims to support offshore wind projects in Taiwan. It is situated close to the existing storage yard (now occupying about 12,000 m2) - the port and indoor storage facilities are also nearby.
