Nexans has confirmed the contract award from the transmission system operator TenneT to supply and install the cables for the DolWin6 direct-current link.
The contract, worth around 100 million euros, comprises the cables, accessories and installation.
Two 90-km-long high-voltage direct-current cables from Nexans will transport up to 900 MW of wind power from North Sea Cluster 3 to the Emden/Ost converter station.
In addition to the DC cables, Nexans will be installing a fibre-optic cable for data transfer. The project – Nexans Deutschland’s biggest to date – is scheduled for completion in 2023.
